About

Hi I’m Lauren… Welcome to my Social Work Scrapbook the place I contain my  ideas, successes and occasional rants.

I am a clinical social worker that’s in the process of developing my therapeutic style.  Like many others my background has greatly impacted how I see the world.  I was raised on the west side of San Antonio, TX…and I am proud of my Latino culture.

I began practicing professionally in 2009 after receiving BA Psychology & MA Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin.  I have worked in foster care, special education, and  juvenile correctional settings.  I bring all I have experienced to my current position as a school social worker on the South side of San Antonio where I work with middle school youth, special needs students and homeless teens.

Welcome, I hope to hear from you!

  1. I’m so excited to read your blog! I’m applying for a graduate degree in social work and trying to learn everything I can. I also hope to work with youth and young adults. Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

  2. I am so glad I found your blog! I absolutely admire your drive and passion. I’m in the process of becoming a social worker too can’t wait to keep up with your posts!

  3. Hi Lauren! I found your blog via Pinterest and am currently finishing up my MSW at Ohio State University with a focus in school social work. All of these things are so helpful!! My boyfriend is possibly applying for a position with the San Antonio Mission (baseball) and I may be moving down. I’d love to have a social work contact, especially school social work. If you find any time or have any more information, I’d love to chat about San Antonio and SW life around there! My e-mail is cait.brown1@gmail.com
