California child welfare, probation and behavioral health professionals have long recognized that children and youth thrive best in families, in the neighborhoods they know, and in their own schools and communities. Children and youth with high needs often leave behind all they know and those they love when placed out of their homes. Wraparound is an approach that allows children and youth with high needs to successfully remain in family settings and in their own communities.
The Resource Center for Family-Focused Practice, supported by the California Department of Social Services, provides tailored services and training to support Wraparound. The courses listed below are open for enrollment for Wraparound county agency staff, mental health providers, parent partners, probation staff, and community partners/stakeholders. Please see specific course enrollment policies for more information.
