Ed Morales, MSW

Since 2011, Ed Morales has worked with more than 1000 kids and a dozen schools in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area as a school social worker, school-based therapist, community advocate and trainer. In addition to his work as a school and community-based therapist with Watercourse Counseling Center in Minneapolis, serving children and adolescents on the city’s south side. Ed is also the founder of Socorro Consulting, an organization based on the city’s north side dedicated to closing persistent gaps in quality mental health services for under-resourced children and families.  The organization is committed to supporting schools, teachers, and parents in implementing Collaborative Problem Solving solutions.

As a single foster parent of two amazing sisters, Ed has put Collaborative Problem Solving to the test in his own home and credits the approach with maintaining peace and stability through even the most turbulent times. As a therapist in the MN Adopt network of adoption-competent therapists, Ed works closely with foster and adoptive families to support Collaborative Problem-Solving in homes around the state.

Ed earned a Master of Social Work from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Public Policy from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
