Review for Groupworks for Education Inc, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Three years ago, I became involved with GroupWorks for Education as a school social worker, new to the school system. My experience with the organzation since has been nothing short of transformational.
Through regular group supervision by seasoned facilitators (some of the best in the field, in my opinion), I have gained the knowledge and insight necessary to best work with the students in my school.
GroupWorks for Education provides a very unique (and rare) space for me to process the goings-on of the ever fast-paced school day. I can always bring challenging cases to my supervision group knowing that I will walk away with valuable insights; and just as important is the emotional and professional support I receive from this organization. In turn, I am able to be more effective in my daily work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the wonderfully facilitated, bi-monthly supervision I have received for the past 2 years. I draw so much support and strength from my participation in the organization. GroupWorks for Education helps me to be a better social worker for the students with whom I work. It is truly a unique organization--one of the rare few who can affect the changes needed to improve the public school system.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want to see this wonderful organization expanded! The service it provides, to both students and staff alike, is truly needed in the New York City public school system. EVERY clinician, teacher, administrator, and educator should know about and experience the transformational power of the services GroupWorks for Education provides.
