In Kitty's leadership, I came to the Wellness Center and began to familiar with the work.
WellnessCenter, attached to the Student Affairs, which offers health services、disability services and counseling.There are six people in the center,the director、a secretary, two counselors, two nurses, one of the nurse also responsible for matters related services for the disabled.
Kitty is so considerable，and she arrange for me to have the opportunity to interview each of them. I carefully observed their office,each person has picture of family, friends, and more are arranged for the visiting students, and they make every visitor feel relaxed and comfortable.
Kim is responsible for disability services, she told me that there are about 120 handicapped in Lander.She is in charge of their coordination of relevant departments, arrange their houses (as in the first floor, to be easily accessible), if the students need some help related to academic,she also can help themto coordinate the curriculum.She looks evey students as her friend,give them encouragement and assistance within its capacity.
CeCe is a counselor, an active lady. She provides counseling service everday,and she also responsible for group training. She took out her own notebook and described in detail the work content.Also she invited me to join their group training programs and Mental Illness Awareness Week.
The next day,after finishing my Montessori class,I went to the WellnessCenter again, to have a meeting with Justin and Kim.
Justine is 30 years old birthday that day, I told him in China 30years birthday is very special for man ,it means “you will be a real man and it is good time for your career development.”He smiled and told me, he felt lucky to work in the Wellness Center to help others. He enjoyed his work very much,although he has been worked for only one year, but he worked very hard, especially interested in group training and did a good job.During the meeting ,
he presented training group projects to me and share some photos.
Kim is a registered nurse,a nice lady.When came into her office,there is everything:bed, medicine, disinfection cabinet, masks, handset, etc., because her office is a simply medical room.She is very busy, and provide healthy service 35—40 a day.I don’t want to disturb her too much,so we will have a meeting again sometime.
Two days of the Wellness Center staff interview all let me begin to understand and become familiar with their work, I think this is an affinity group, they do their best to give people who come to seek help best help.
