Observation SupervisorLone Star Social Services - Pflugerville, TX
August 2015 to May 2016
Contract Worker for the State of Texas - CPS
Observe visitations between children in foster care and their biological families to ensure the safety and well being of the child. These visits typically occur at a CPS office, Lone Star Corporate Office, public place (park, hospitals, restaurant, home)
I also do private practice cases not associated with the state but coordinated thru the attorneys of the mothers and fathers of the children involved.
In a short time, I became one of the lead observers handling sensitive and volatile cases and acted as a backup for management when they were unable to coordinate visits vs locations.
Listening, observing, picking up on subtle things that may be said to or from the child. I can sense when something is about to be said or done by reading body movements or facial expressions.
