Sedgwick County Department of Corrections
As a practicum student, I was placed at the Sedgwick County Department of Corrections Community Corrections Residential Center. My main function was to facilitate cognitive skills groups for adult and juvenile consumers. The groups ranged in size from two to fifteen consumers. I also provided cognitive skills and support counseling on an individual basis. I was able to broker community financial resources to the agency and provided individual budgeting support for clients as an attempt to address the many financial needs of our consumers. I also updated and expanded our Community Resource Manual for use by the staff and consumers of the agency. I professionally documented all interaction with consumers and participated in supervision as a practicum student with my LSCSW field instructor.
