SLV.Global Placement: Advanced Placement, May 2018

Current Role: "I now have a new job as a Behaviour Interventionist and I am continuing my volunteer role at the Crisis Line."

Tell us about your SLV.Global experience: "My SLV.Global experience surpassed my expectations for a volunteer placement; from the employees and supervisors of SLV.Global, to the lovely people of Sri Lanka, I felt supported, welcomed, and utmost comfortable in planning sessions and working at the placements. I am very impressed with SLV.Global and have gained such a unique perspective on mental health work."

Tell us what you gained from your SLV.Global Placement: "I learned about using lots of nonverbal communication for those unable to uncomfortably speak about their experiences, structuring therapeutic sessions for clients, working with a team, and copious amounts of cultural humility"
