Participants of Mid Valley Outpatient will have the opportunity to attend two new groups as of this week. Seeking Safety is a manualized evidence-based practice, used to assist participants in learning and practicing new coping skills to deal with both substance use and trauma symptoms. Participants will also be able to take Employment Readiness group to assist them in developing and acting on a vocational plan. “Many of our participants have never held a job or developed the skills needed to acquire one. I’m glad we are able to help them with real life skills to get them into the workplace,” says Joann Saldana, a Counselor at Mid Valley. Participants will learn how to budget, identify employment goals, and how to fill out a job application and succeed in the interview process.
