A Day in the Life
of a Merivale Social Worker
To be a social worker within a residential environment like Merivale comes with unique challenges, as the families must adjust to communal living during their stay.
While this can be daunting for the residents initially, the Therapeutic Community model that Merivale uses brings healing, connectedness and growth. Seeing this occur is one of the Merivale social workers’s richest rewards.
