Are you passionate about helping youth overcome barriers to their successes? Do you enjoy being part of a creative team to help youth with complex trauma improve their day to day functioning?
As a Child and Family Social Worker for Wraparound in Merced, California, you’ll use your leadership skills to see that proper intervention plans are developed and implemented by the Child and Family team in the family’s home or community. Using respect and empathy, you’ll lead the team in providing child-centered, family-focused and strength-based services directly to youth with extensive trauma histories. While spearheading the treatment team, you will see that the focus is on building stronger, safer and more independent families and children. Reignite your passion for helping families in need by using your education and experience to make a meaningful difference in your community.
As a Child and Family Social Worker in Merced, California, you’ll coordinate, conduct and document assessments, screenings and child and family meetings in homes or community settings. You’ll use a strength-based approach to inspire your team to execute the individualized behavioral support plans for their families. You’ll meet with the support team individually and as a group for status and care updates. At times, you’ll use your rapport and motivation skills to help parents fully engage with the support offered. You will meet with families around their schedules, so some days may begin when school starts, while other days may end around dinner time. You’ll adjust your day accordingly. Participation in after-hours on-call on a rotating basis allows you to provide immediate support to a child and family in crisis.
