    A New Experience
    well, today i had my first training day at the vancouver youth crisis line. it was very interesting... I was surprised to find out that it is really just 90% repeating back to them how they are feeling and validating that... It feels alittle funny saying every 2 seconds, "so it sounds like you are feeling..." but i guess it makes sense because most of the people that call in are really just looking to be heard. I have my first monitoring session tomorrow night where i will be listening in on real calls, so i am looking forward to that.

    I do have to say i am a bit nervous about working on the crisis line. But there is a lot more training that will give us steps to handle any and every case possible... I'll keep you posted as to how it goes.

    About Me

    Name: jamie
    Home: St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
    About Me: I am an American living in Ontario. I've just recently started going to school again for a BA in Human Services. I like mexican and indian food and watching tv way more than the average individual. I absolutely love talking to my parents on the phone and my brother is one of my best friends. I'm married to a great guy whose pretty much the exact opposite of me but he loves me and makes laugh and we have a lot of fun. I didn't always feel this way, but these days I'm feelin' pretty good. That's my life, welcome to chaos and order.
