Foundational Wraparound

The Foundational Wraparound training is hybrid in format, with both live (virtual) classes and independent learning opportunities. This course will walk participants through the Wraparound process, introducing the key phases, principles and practices of the Wraparound team. The training starts with a 2-hour orientation (the first date listed on the right-side bar) and is followed by five separate instructor-led modules (all modules are 3 hours except module 3 which is 4 hours – together totaling 18 hours of in-class time). Independent learning opportunities will take between 1 – 4 hours to complete in between sessions (the orientation will explain the independent work. Please plan on spending approximately 3 hours independently between the orientation and module 1).

This course provides a comprehensive overview of High-Fidelity Wraparound, and is appropriate for all members of the Wraparound team, including facilitators (care coordinators), peer partners, family specialists, supervisors and others. The Wraparound model enhances safety, permanency, and well-being for children and youth and is implemented in California according to the California Wraparound Standards.

The learning objectives align to fulfill 6 key goals for participants to achieve:

  • Recognize, understand and be able to describe the basic components of Wraparound (including the principles and phases) in culturally responsive, family-friendly language.
  • Understand what engaging children, youth and families means and why it is so important.
  • Value the Wraparound Child and Family Team including why specific individuals are part of the team and their various roles throughout the Four Phases.
  • Understand how to work with families during times of crisis and help them plan for future crises.
  • Understand families have both strengths and needs and that the most successful work with children, youth and families is strengths-based.
  • Understand how Wraparound works with families by using individualized plans of care from the initial through the transitional plans. These plans of care among other things measure progress and outcomes throughout the Wraparound process.
