June 20, 2016 | Emily Taylor

Dr. John VanDenBerg will be a plenary speaker and workshop presenter at the 2nd Annual National Wraparound Academy, which will be held September 19 – 21, 2016 at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel and Executive Meeting Center in Rockville, MD.

Dr. VanDenBerg is a co-founder of the Wraparound process. In the 30 years since the first system of care-based Wraparound efforts began, he has spent his career writing about, speaking about, training, and measuring Wraparound. He is currently focusing on the partnership of Wraparound, systems of care, and the faith community in relationship to poverty reduction; as well as on the integration of core services and community resources. Dr. VanDenBerg has authored many publications and books on Wraparound, and is an active volunteer with a Wraparound-based agency in his home rural community in Western Colorado, where Wraparound staff are being located in physician’s offices.
