A nice place to work
Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAOctober 20, 2013
Pros: flexible schedules
Cons: strict adherence to 24 hour submission rule
A typical day start off with checking the daily schedule that you created bringing all the necessities for today's clientele. I've learned how to manage seeing clients, processing progress towards goals, and submitting notes within 24 hours. My co-workers are the best that anyone could ask for. They provided tips for making your day both productive and fulfilling.The hardest part of the job is leaving clients for whatever reasons (moved out of area, no longer eligible for services, etc,) The most enjoyable part is seeing a child changes and grow cognitively is amazing.

Wraparound Child and Family Specialist (Former Employee), Lancaster, CAOctober 1, 2012
Pros: paid lunch, healthcare and 401k benefits
Cons: long hours, not a lot of opportunity for advancement
The Warapround Program is a very faced paced and fluid working environment. Work Days ranged from the average 8 Hours but could extend to working 12+ due to the nature of the program. As someone who works for the Wraparound Program, you are typically on call 24/7 for crisis situiations. During my tenure there, I worked a wide variety of situations and was trained on multiple different scenarios that one may have to face while working with the families that receive the service. I personally achieved being selected by the agency to become a trainer for the Wraparound Program.

The hardest part of the job is the amount of effort and energy that you will find yourself putting into the families that you serve. If you do not have the heart for helping families in need, Wraparound is not a program for you. Successes with the families that work through the Wraparound process are all very gratifying, and will most certainly keep you motivated to continue. By far, seeing a family succeed is the best part of the job. It will out weigh practically any negatives that are experienced.
