Oren Wunderman, Ph.D.

Oren Wunderman, Ph.D., is the Executive Director of the Family Resource Center of South Florida (FRC).  Having begun working at FRC in March 1995 as a Director of a division of FRC, Dr. Wunderman was promoted to the position of C.E.O. in June 1999.  Applying skills and knowledge that he learned from more than 35 years of working in Child Welfare Centers, Community Mental Health Centers, private practice settings and educational settings,  Dr. Wunderman oversees the administrative, programmatic, clinical, fiscal, fund-raising and personnel matters that arise from day-to-day at FRC.Dr. Wunderman attributes much of the success of the agency to these core service principles, which he articulates to the staff over the years:

  • Treat and regard your clients with respect, humility and dignity.  But for the Grace of God, or, if you are not a deist, the fortuity of random happenstance, you could be one of those abused, neglected, abandoned or troubled children that we serve, or you could be one of the dysfunctional parents that we serve.
  • Work as a team with your co-workers and with other professionals and para-professionals in the community who are sharing the case with you.
  • In each day, distinguish yourself as an outstandingly dedicated and competent professional and as an invaluable asset to FRC.
  • Make Professional Development and Personal Growth goals in your work at FRC.

Dr. Wunderman feels that the following management principles help the staff of FRC perform well, maintain a high morale and flourish:

  • Always praise in public and criticize in private.
  • Give praise in no more than one minute.
  • Give a reprimand in no more than one minute
  • Goal-set with employees in a realistic and respectful manner.
  • Invite the staff to be part of the investigative team in diagnosing  programmatic or clinical problems.
  • Invite the staff to be part of the brain-storming team in establishing solutions to programmatic or clinical problems.

Dr. Wunderman obtained his Bachelor’s degree (Psychology Major), Master’s degree (Community Counseling Major) and Doctoral degree (Counseling Psychology major) from the University of Miami.  He is licensed in the State of Florida as a Psychologist, Marriage and Family Therapist.  He earned a professional certificate in “Quality Healthcare Management” from the School of Business at Florida International University.
