This three-day training is focused on providing the basic understanding and tools necessary for effective facilitation of wrapround team processes. Wraparound is a cross system planning process designed to assist communities and families facing multiple complex needs to develop help plans that are needs based and strengths driven. The session will provide participants with an overview of the development of wraparound followed by a detailed examination of what it takes to fulfill the facilitator role in this process. Engaging families, building strengths inventories, organizing teams, running effective planning meetings, helping teams maintain a sense of progress, and knowing when and how to effectively transition away from wraparound are processes that this training will allow current and potential facilitators to explore and practice.
