Screening Questionnaire

Although our candidate screening process encompasses traditional criteria such as education, training, level of experience, job references, background clearances, and other basic measures, our broader framework incorporates three key dimensions.  As an agency, we determine the extent to which each candidate brings therapeutically based values and beliefs, appropriate competencies, and the capacity for self-awareness and self-control.

We understand that working with youth who are experiencing a range of personal difficulties and emotional challenges is not for everyone. We would like to assist you in making this important decision.

Please consider the following questions as you determine if your next career "step" should be in the direction of Sarah A. Reed Children's Center.
