I'm getting sworn in tomorrow as a CASA and can't wait to get started on my first case! While the classroom training was extensive, I don't feel like we spent enough time discussing the practical and interpersonal aspects of doing the job. I don't know any seasoned CASAs personally, so I figured I'd cast my net out to my fellow Websleuthers to see if any CASAs out there would share any advice and/or tips and/or guidance about what has or hasn't worked for them over the years. Particularly I'm interested in any words of wisdom regarding meeting the child for the first time and breaking the ice. Thanks!
