My name is Abby. I am a senior Social Work major with a Psychology minor. I’m from Hartland, Wisconsin. My field placement was at Shults-Lewis Child and Family Services in Valparaiso. It is a Christian residential treatment facility for youth ages 12-18 with behavioral problems. I worked in the social services department observing individual counseling sessions and led groups of my own. I also assisted with the intake process. My junior year placement was at New Vistas High School in Portage. I spent the semester obtaining resources for GED and high school students by helping them apply for social services, like disability and Medicaid. I also helped them apply for college or jobs. end
