This makes me sick...

I know cases like this occur all the time, but some of them really strike a nerve with me (for what reason, I don't know) and this is one of them: http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2010/11/teens_bragged_about_beating_of.html

    I can't even read that... this kind of stuff disturbs me to no end. There was an incident a few months ago in Summit- 5 minutes from where I live- where an immigrant restaurant worker was beat to death while he was relaxing on a bench after work in downtown Summit. Sick sh!t.

    It is soo sad and unfortunate...I deal with kids like this every day! Unfortunately even therapy is an unlikely hope for helping them. They all bragged about it.

    Oh wow, that's really interesting!   Do you work in a hospital setting?  Just with kids?  I'm always impressed by people who do that type of work.  I would love to, but I know I don't have the ability to stay composed and to avoid taking on everyone else's problems myself.  I would probably end up with constant ulcers and horrible stress-related health issues.  I really do admire you.

    I work with kids...but because it is the child, we deal with the whole family. We go into the homes when there is a crisis and help link the families with services. It is kinda like social work...my degree is in counseling. It is a 24/7 program so sometimes we are oncall overnight...like last week when I was called out at 1 am....the oncall is definitely not a perk, but the job itself is somewhat rewarding. Sometimes it is very frustrating when a parent refuses necessary help for their child.

    I can't even begin to understand what goes through the minds of the teens in this attack or the one in Summit.

    Denise, I don't blame you for needing to move on. I agree with peaches, I admire what you do.

    this is disgusting!  What's more disturbing is that these kids are out on bail right now.  They should be in county jail awaiting their trials..

    This story actually brought tears to my eyes. This is just tragic and these children are pretty much done for life. What a waste.

    Denise, I agree that I totally admire what you do and would love to do something similar, but just as peaches said, I think that I wouldn't be able to handle it. I can see why you are looking to move on.

    I've been doing this particular job for 4 years. I am looking to have a more clinical/therapy based position, and possibly get into a group practice. Most of my experience is with kids, although I don't mind adults.
