A Roadmap for Building on Youth Strengths (2008)
Author: Cox, K.
A core element of the Wraparound process is the planning of services that build not only on family assets, but also on youth strengths and capabilities. This principle is founded in the belief that by capitalizing on the capabilities of children and adolescents, Wraparound providers create a sense of hope for the future and enhance motivation for change (Saleebey, 2002). To facilitate the process of assessing the internal and external resources of youth, a variety of methods and tools have been advanced, ranging from informal "strengths chats" (VanDenBerg & Grealish, 1996) to standardized measures, such as the Behavioral and Emotional Rating Scale (BERS; Epstein & Sharma, 1998). Little work has been done, however, to delineate the process of tapping the strengths identified through these and similar means. In an effort to fill this gap, this chapter provides a roadmap for Wraparound practitioners, intended to guide their efforts in developing plans of care that build on the skills, interests, and capacities of the youth served.

Abstract: Best Practices in Wraparound: A Multidimensional View of the Evidence (2011)
Author: Walter, U. M., & Petr, C. G.
This article presents a systematic review of the effectiveness of Wraparound, a value-guided, widely used service planning process and philosophy of care originally developed for children with serious emotional disturbance and their families. In contrast to conventional systematic reviews, which concentrate on the empirical literature, this article uses the multidimensional evidence-based practice approach, which adds professional knowledge and consumer perspectives to a value-critical analysis. The findings contextualize the limited empirical support for Wraparound within a social work value frame, suggesting areas of improvement for the implementation of the Wraparound model. A broader ecological frame for Wraparound highlights the need to include more natural supports on teams, to ensure backing from higher level administrators, and to emphasize client self-determination. Youths and families should be afforded leadership roles on teams and be supported by parent advocates. To extend the empowerment idea of Wraparound beyond the individual case level, a clear commitment to social justice by working toward systems changes must be added.

Abstract: Building on Practice-Based Evidence: Using Expert Perspectives to Define the Wraparound Process (2006)
Author: Walker, J. S., & Bruns, E. J.
In this report, the authors describe the results of an effort to better define the Wraparound process for children and adolescents with serious emotional and behavioral problems. Results indicate that using the experience of a wide base of stakeholders to operationalize a complex model such as Wraparound is feasible and holds many potential benefits, including building consensus in the field, improving service quality, and accelerating the incorporation of evaluation results into real-world practice.

Abstract: Effectiveness of the Wraparound Process for Children with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders: A Meta-Analysis (2009)
Author: Suter, J. C., & Bruns, E. J.
Wraparound is a team-based service planning and coordination process intended to improve outcomes for children and youth with serious emotional and behavioral disorders and support them in their homes, schools, and communities. Given the substantial resources devoted to implementing Wraparound, a meta-analysis of outcome studies was conducted to better understand current empirical support for this process. A literature search identified seven studies between 1986 and 2008 that documented the effects of youth receiving Wraparound compared to control groups. Mean treatment effects across outcome domains ranged from medium for youth living situation (0.44) to small for mental health outcomes (0.31), overall youth functioning (0.25), school functioning (0.27), and juvenile justice-related outcomes (0.21). The overall mean effect size across studies was 0.33. Interpretation of results was complicated by the lack of consistent documentation of implementation fidelity across studies and conditions, variations in target population and intended outcomes, and methodological concerns. The authors conclude that, though the published Wraparound research base is expanding and findings are largely positive, it continues to be in a preliminary state of development. However, there are insufficient data to support calls for Wraparound's acceptance or dismissal based on the strength of existing studies.

Abstract: Implementation Research and Wraparound Literature: Building a Research Agenda (2010)
Author: Bertram, R. M., Suter, J. C., Bruns, E. J., & O’Rourke, K. E.
We used the framework identified by the National Implementation Research Network’s (NIRN) analysis of 35 years of implementation outcomes literature from diverse fields of endeavor to review the current state of Wraparound implementation research. Model definition, model fidelity and intervention outcomes were areas of relatively greater development, while target population, theory base and theory of change, organizational context and readiness, staff selection, training, supervision or coaching, purveyor selection, and program installation were less examined or even overlooked. We conclude with suggestions for building a research agenda on Wraparound implementation.

Abstract: Integrating Wraparound into a Schoolwide System of Positive Behavior Supports (2011)
Author: Eber, L., Hyde, K., & Suter, J. C.
We describe the structure for implementation of the Wraparound process within a multi-tiered system of school wide positive behavior support (SWPBS) to address the needs of the 1-5% of students with complex emotional/behavioral challenges. The installation of prerequisite system features that, based on a 3 year demonstration process, we consider critical to full operation of the Tier 3 Wraparound intervention within a system of SWPBS is also described. We include examples of system implementation benchmarks that occur concurrently with student outcome data and are logically linked to full operation and sustainability of Wraparound implementation. Challenges surrounding implementation and proposed advancements are also discussed. (Contains 2 figures.)

Abstract: Juvenile Offenders with Mental Health Needs: Reducing Recidivism Using Wraparound (2006)
Author: Pullmann, M. A., Kerbs, J., Koroloff, N., Veach-White, E., Gaylor, R., & Sieler, D. D.
The rate of youth with mental health needs is disproportionately high in juvenile justice. Wraparound planning involves families and providers in coordinating juvenile justice, mental health, and other services and supports. This study compares data from two groups of juvenile offenders with mental health problems: 106 youth in a juvenile justice Wraparound program called Connections and a historical comparison group of 98 youth in traditional mental health services. Cox regression survival analyses revealed that youth in Connections were significantly less likely to recidivate at all, less likely to recidivate with a felony offense, and served less detention time.

Abstract: National Trends in Implementing Wraparound: Results from the State Wraparound Survey (2011)
Author: Bruns, E. J., Sather, A., Pullmann, M. D., & Stambaugh, L. F.
The Wraparound process has been promoted in the children’s services field as a mechanism to achieve collaborative service planning and delivery for families of young people with complex emotional and behavioral needs that span multiple agencies. We compared results of two surveys of state children’s mental health directors, completed in 1998 and 2008, to derive estimates of the extent of Wraparound implementation in the United States and to better understand trends in how Wraparound has been implemented and supported over time. Results from 2008 found that 88% of states reported having some type of Wraparound program that conformed to the definition and provided an estimate of 100,000 children and families served via Wraparound in that year. Between 1998 and 2008, states reported increased application of Wraparound standards, a greater number of agencies involved in Wraparound initiatives, and more formal evaluations of Wraparound initiatives. Results provide substantiation of the widespread implementation of Wraparound implementation in the United States, and evidence that the model is becoming more consistently supported by formal implementation structures over time.

Abstract: The Community Supports for Wraparound Inventory: An Assessment of the Implementation Context for Wraparound (2011)
Author: Walker, J. S., & Sanders, B.
The Wraparound process has emerged as perhaps the most frequently implemented comprehensive approach for planning and providing individualized, community-based care for children and adolescents with serious mental health conditions. Providing comprehensive care through the Wraparound process necessarily requires a high level of collaboration across organization and agency boundaries. This need for significant inter-agency or 'system-level' collaboration creates a complex implementation environment for Wraparound. It is therefore not surprising that creating and sustaining a hospitable implementation environment has proven to be extremely challenging. For the people who are responsible for managing the inter-organizational collaboration, it is not easy to evaluate the adequacy of local system-level support for Wraparound and to see exactly what kinds of supports are lacking or where system-development efforts should focus. Furthermore, as system-development strategies are put into practice, it can be difficult to assess whether or not meaningful progress is occurring. The Community Supports for Wraparound Inventory (CSWI) was developed to respond to the need for an assessment of the extent to which a community has developed system-level capacity to implement Wraparound. This article reports on a study that evaluated the reliability and validity of the CSWI for use in communities implementing Wraparound. Findings indicate that the CSWI shows promise as a reliable, valid and useful tool.

Abstract: The Efficacy of the RENEW Model: Individualized School-to-Career Services for Youth At Risk of School Dropout (2010)
Author: Malloy, J. M., Sundar, V., Hagner, D., Pierias, L., & Viet, T.
This article describes the results of a research project designed to assess the efficacy of a secondary transition model, RENEW (Rehabilitation, Empowerment, Natural supports, Education and Work), on the social and emotional functioning of 20 youth at risk of dropping out of high school using the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS) supplemented by a case study to illustrate one student's experience. The study indicates that youth who engaged in the RENEW process had significant improvements in functioning in school and at home, and overall positive gains in several behavioral health domains.

Abstract: The National Wraparound Initiative: A Community of Practice Approach to Building Knowledge in the Field of Children's Mental Health (2011)
Author: Walker, J. S., Bruns, E. J., Conlan, L., & LaForce, C.
One of the most significant recent trends in the field of children's mental health has been the shift in the conceptualization of authority and expertise. Increasingly, there are demands to recognize-and to respond to-the perspectives of people who have traditionally been seen more as passive targets of interventions and other change efforts. This has led to a variety of efforts to blend perspectives and/or build partnerships between consumers and providers or between researchers and practitioners. This article explores how a commitment to blending perspectives as a way of providing children's mental health services was a central factor in the emergence of Wraparound, a widely implemented care-planning approach for children with complex needs and their families. The commitment to blending perspectives is also a central organizing principle of the collaborative work of a community of practice called the National Wraparound Initiative (NWI), which has worked to support Wraparound and to generate knowledge about Wraparound practice and implementation. The article goes on to describe some of the benefits, challenges, and tensions that have emerged in the work of the community of practice and to consider what the experience of the NWI may have to offer to others engaged in similar efforts.

Connecting the Dots: Stages of Implementation, Wraparound Fidelity and Youth Outcomes (2011)
Author: Effland, V. S., Walton, B., & McIntyre, J.
Several necessary system and organizational support conditions for Wraparound have been identified (Walker et al. 2003). Yet, the relationship between these necessary system level conditions and Wraparound fidelity has only recently begun to be examined. Similarly, few studies have included a measure of Wraparound fidelity when examining the relationship between Wraparound implementation and youth outcomes. The statewide implementation of a Wraparound demonstration grant offers the opportunity to explore these relationships and to identify factors that predict improvement in functioning for youth receiving Wraparound. Findings suggest that significant relationships exist between (1) the stage of development of necessary support conditions for Wraparound and Wraparound fidelity and (2) Wraparound fidelity and improvement in youth outcomes.

Demonstrating the Effectiveness of the Wraparound Model with Juvenile Justice Youth through Measuring and Achieving Lower Recidivism

After conducting five recidivism studies since 2009, the overall rates of recidivism for Wraparound enrolled youth appear low and stable. While national norms for recidivism are lacking, local studies such as that done by the Public Policy Forum demonstrate that youth in the Wraparound Milwaukee program are not re-offending at as high a rate as the general delinquency population as a whole.

Developing Quality Indicators for Family Support Services in Community Team-Based Mental Health Care
Author: Serene Olin, S., Kutash, K., Pollock, M., Burns, B. J., Kuppinger, A., Craig, N., Purdy, F., Armusewicz, K., Wisdom J., & Hoagwo
Quality indicators for programs integrating parent-delivered family support services for children’s mental health have not been systematically developed. Increasing emphasis on accountability under the Affordable Care Act highlights the importance of quality-benchmarking efforts. Using a modified Delphi approach, quality indicators were developed for both program level and family support specialist level practices. These indicators were pilot tested with 21 community-based mental health programs. Psychometric properties of these indicators are reported; variations in program and family support specialist performance suggest the utility of these indicators as tools to guide policies and practices in organizations that integrate parent-delivered family support service components.

Development and Validation of a Wraparound Parent Partner Fidelity Tool
Author: Polinsky, M. L., Levine, M. H., Pion-Berlin, L., Torres, A., & Garibay, J.
Parent partners are parents or caregivers such as foster parents who have had success in dealing with a difficult child in a child welfare, mental health, or probation system and who become key players on Wraparound teams for families with youths with emotional or behavioral disabilities who are in out-of-home care. Although many studies have been conducted on the Wraparound model, none of them have described the parent partner’s role and fidelity to the model. The Parent Partner Fidelity Tool (PPFT) was developed to address this gap in Wraparound research; it is the first tool designed to measure parent partner adherence to the Wraparound model and identify parent partner training and support needs. The 28-item PPFT captures parent partner activities related to the four Wraparound phases designated by the National Wraparound Initiative: engagement, planning, implementation, and transition. Similar PPFT versions are completed by Wraparound facilitators, parent partners, and parents/caregivers to provide multiple perspectives on the parent partner’s work. The PPFT pilot testing project was conducted with 14 California Wraparound programs. Analyses of the 585 responses showed good reliability and validity for the PPFT, indicating that it is a psychometrically sound tool.

Does Team-Based Planning "Work" for Adolescents? Findings from Studies of Wraparound
Author: Walker, J. S., Pullmann, M. D., Moser, C. L., & Bruns, E. J.
Human service and educational agencies often convene interdisciplinary teams to work collaboratively with adolescents and their parents or caregivers. However, research on adolescent development suggests that it may be difficult to successfully engage adolescents this kind of team-based planning. This article focuses on Wraparound as an example of a team planning process, and uses data from several sources to reflect on questions about whether—and under what conditions—collaborative teams are successful in engaging young people—and their caregivers—in planning.

Effectiveness of Wraparound Versus Case Management for Children and Adolescents: Results of a Randomized Study (2014)
Author: Bruns, E., Pullman, M., Sather, A., Brinson, R., & Ramey, M.
In this study, we compared service experiences and outcomes for youths with serious emotional disorder (SED) randomly assigned to care coordination via a defined Wraparound process (n = 47) versus more traditional intensive case management (ICM; n = 46) The Wraparound group received more mean hours of care management and services; however, there ultimately were no group differences in restrictiveness of residential placement, emotional and behavioral symptoms, or functioning. Wraparound implementation fidelity was found to be poor. Organizational culture and climate, and worker morale, were poorer for the Wraparound providers than the ICM group. Results suggest that, for less-impaired youths with SED, less intensive options such as ICM may be equally effective to poor-quality Wraparound delivered in the absence of Wraparound implementation supports and favorable system conditions.

EMQ Children & Family Services: Transformation from Residential Services to Wraparound
Author: Doyle, F. J., Castillo, E., Champion, L., & Evora, D.
EMQ Children & Family Services (aka Eastfield Ming Quong) is a private, not-for-profit community-based organization that provides a wide range of services, from addiction prevention to Wraparound and Rate Classification Level (RCL) 14 group home care (aka residential treatment services), in four major counties throughout California: (a) Santa Clara, (b) Sacramento, (c) San Bernardino, and (d) Los Angeles. It also provides foster care services in 20 other counties. The agency is over a century old, founded in 1867 with roots as an orphanage (Home of Benevolence, later known as Eastfield’s Children Center) and a rescue mission for Chinese girls (the Presbyterian Mission Home later known as Ming Quong) founded in 1874. In 1970, Jerry Doyle became Executive Director of Eastfield Children’s Center. At that time, the agency had an annual budget of approximately $300,000 to provide residential treatment. In 1987, Eastfield and Ming Quong merged to become Eastfield Ming Quong. Prior to becoming the first Wraparound provider in California in 1994, EMQ operated 130 RCL 14 residential treatment beds, at a cost of $95,000 per year per child. The most common primary diagnosis was related to disruptive behaviors (47%), with some type of depressive disorder as the second most common. The outcomes for these youth, after an average of 18 months of service, reflected the general “treatment as usual” outcomes. Today, residential treatment revenue represents 5% of a $55 million annual revenue stream, as compared to 72% of a $12 million annual revenue stream prior to the implementation of Wraparound. The purpose of this article is twofold: 1) to present a case study of how a child-serving organization transformed itself from residential to innovative, community-based services; and 2) to share issues revealed in the process of implementing Wraparound. The article contains three major sections including Introduction, Current Operations, and Tips to Implement Wraparound, as well as a final section that includes Lesson Learned. Throughout this article, we will reflect on the significant systems change required to implement Wraparound.

Exploring the Theory and Paradigm Base for Wraparound
Author: Malysiak, R.
Until recently, family-centered policy and practice used expert models which defined families of children with serious emotional disturbance as dysfunctional A collaborative model, called Wraparound, is emerging which engages these families as decision making participants, using naturally occurring strengths to wrap individualized supports around the child and family. However, because Wraparound has been defined only through value-based principles, the fidelity of the model is threatened by a developmental paradox. Those who have received training and whose careers have been shaped in more traditional expert models of deficit remediation can interpret these value-based principles as an emergent form of case management methodology. Critical and constructivist paradigms, and ecological systems theory, form a basis for negotiating this paradox to maintain fidelity of Wraparound process. Anchored in this base, and derived from Wraparound's value-based principles, a single construct with an operative focus is suggested to ensure the integrity of this collaborative model.

Family Driven, Individualized, and Outcomes Based: Improving Wraparound Teamwork and Outcomes Using the Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP) System
Author: Bruns, E. J., Walker, J. S., Chorpita, B., & Daleiden, E.
The Wraparound team process has established itself as a standard of care for children and youth with complex needs and their families who require coordination of care and for whom a single intervention is unlikely to suffice. Research results indicate that Wraparound's strongest evidence for positive effects are in the residential, family, and cost domains. In these areas, significant, medium-sized effects have been found across a range of studies. Positive clinical and youth functioning outcomes, on the other hand, have been less consistently found, and when they are found, they tend to be small. This has inspired many Wraparound and system of care advocates to ask how better clinical and functional progress in youths might be promoted through thoughtful application of evidence-based practices within Wraparound. Unfortunately, however, the traditional evidence-based practices, when implemented in "real world" community settings, are often limited in terms of their effectiveness, feasibility, and cost/benefit ratio. This article describes an alternative method for using clinical evidence to structure an individualized approach to clinical care that aligns with the Wraparound philosophy. Instead of strict implementation of one or more manualized treatments, this method is based on a flexible application of the evidence for "what works" in child and family treatments. Components of this approach include the Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP) system, PracticeWise Evidence Based Services (PWEBS) Database, codified clinical supports called Practitioner Guides, and a feedback tool to monitor process and progress of treatment called the Clinical Dashboard. All these tools are supported by an on-line resource library and user interface called PracticeWise.

Family Voice with Informed Choice: Coordinating Wraparound with Research-Based Treatment for Children and Adolescents (2014)
Author: Bruns, E. J., Walker, J. S., Bernstein, A., Daleiden, E., Pullmann, M. D., & Chorpita, B. F.
The Wraparound process is a type of individualized, team-based care coordination that has become central to many state and system efforts to reform children’s mental health service delivery for youths with the most complex needs and their families. Although the emerging Wraparound research base is generally positive regarding placements and costs, effect sizes are smaller for clinical and functional outcomes. This article presents a review of literature on care coordination and Wraparound models, with a focus on theory and research that indicates the need to better connect Wraparound-enrolled children and adolescents to evidence-based treatment (EBT). The article goes on to describe how recently developed applications of EBT that are based on quality improvement and flexible application of “common elements” of research-based care may provide a more individualized approach that better aligns with the philosophy and procedures of the Wraparound process. Finally, this article presents preliminary studies that show the feasibility and potential effectiveness of coordinating Wraparound with the Managing and Adapting Practice system, and discusses intervention development and research options that are currently under way.

We used the framework identified by the National Implementation Research Network’s (NIRN) analysis of 35 years of implementation outcomes literature from diverse fields of endeavor to review the current state of Wraparound implementation research. Model definition, model fidelity and intervention outcomes were areas of relatively greater development, while target population, theory base and theory of change, organizational context and readiness, staff selection, training, supervision or coaching, purveyor selection, and program installation were less examined or even overlooked. We conclude with suggestions for building a research agenda on Wraparound implementation.

In-Home Family Therapy and Wraparound Services for Working with Seriously At-Risk Children and Adolescents
Author: Slattery, J. M., & Knapp, S.
(From the introduction) Addresses community Wraparound services for children. Traditional approaches to treatment usually assume that mental health problems are individual in nature and stable in duration, with hospital care, if used at all, designed to stabilize the problem quickly with quick referral to another provider. This traditional approach does not always work well with children. Children's problems often are embedded in home and school conflicts, and children have limited power to advocate for change. Consequently, services to children sometimes require home-based Wraparound services. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved) (introduction)

Integrating Wraparound into a Schoolwide System of Positive Behavior Supports
Author: Eber, L., Hyde, K., & Suter, J. C.
We describe the structure for implementation of the Wraparound process within a multi-tiered system of school wide positive behavior support (SWPBS) to address the needs of the 1–5% of students with complex emotional/ behavioral challenges. The installation of prerequisite system features that, based on a 3 year demonstration process, we consider critical to full operation of the Tier 3 Wraparound intervention within a system of SWPBS is also described. We include examples of system implementation benchmarks that occur concurrently with student outcome data and are logically linked to full operation and sustainability of Wraparound implementation. Challenges surrounding implementation and proposed advancements are also discussed.

Is Implementation Fidelity Associated with Improved Access to Care in a School-Based Child and Family Team Model?
Author: Gifford, E., Wells, R., Bai, Y. & Malone, P.
Effective child and family centered service planning is crucial to addressing vulnerable children's needs. However, there is limited evidence about what facets of these processes improve service use and outcomes. The current study used a Poisson random effects hazard model to test correlations between fidelity to NC's Child and Family Support Team model and time to service receipt, using case management data for 3396 children served by that program during the 2008–2009 school year. Students were more likely to receive recommended services more quickly when caregivers and the students attended planning meetings, when their plans included services for caregivers, and when child and family team leaders followed up after meetings to verify service receipt. Contrary to the Child and Family Support Team theory of change, match between student needs and the lead agency of the meeting was not associated with the odds of quicker service receipt, nor was attendance by natural supports. Findings from this study demonstrate the potential effectiveness of using case management systems to measure service planning process fidelity, as well as how results thereof can both inform process improvement and potential refinements to models’ theories of change.

National Evaluation of the Medicaid Demonstration Home- and Community-Based Alternatives to Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities: Interim Evaluation Report - October 2011
Author: Urdapilleta, O., Wang, Y., Varghese, R., Kim, G., Busam, S., & Palmisano, C.
This interim report shows that across all state grantees over the first three waiver years, the Demonstration successfully enabled children and/or youth to either maintain or improve their functional status while in the waiver program. Furthermore, over the first two waiver years, Demonstration treatment costs are totaling no more on average than anticipated aggregate PRTF expenditures in the absence of the Demonstration. In most cases, waiver costs were around 20 percent of the average per capita total Medicaid costs for services in institutions, an average per capita saving of $20,000 to $40,000, excluding high and low outliers.

Author: Urdapilleta, O., Wang, Y., Varghese, R., Kim, G., Busam, S., & Palmisano, C.
This report summarizes home- and community-based service outcomes for youth in 9 states that completed a 3-year PRTF waiver demonstration program. Results show that youth in waiver states maintained or improved their functional status and that the delivered services passed a budget neutrality test. The report also shows strong evidence that home- and community-based services actually cost substantially less than institutionalization.

National Trends in Implementing Wraparound: Results from the State Wraparound Survey
Author: Bruns, E. J., Sather, A., Pullman, M. D., & Stambaugh, L. F.
The Wraparound process has been promoted in the children’s services field as a mechanism to achieve collaborative service planning and delivery for families of young people with complex emotional and behavioral needs that span multiple agencies. We compared results of two surveys of state children’s mental health directors, completed in 1998 and 2008, to derive estimates of the extent of Wraparound implementation in the United States and to better understand trends in how Wraparound has been implemented and supported over time. Results from 2008 found that 88% of states reported having some type of Wraparound program that conformed to the definition and provided an estimate of 100,000 children and families served via Wraparound in that year. Between 1998 and 2008, states reported increased application of Wraparound standards, a greater number of agencies involved in Wraparound initiatives, and more formal evaluations of Wraparound initiatives. Results provide substantiation of the widespread implementation of Wraparound implementation in the United States, and evidence that the model is becoming more consistently supported by formal implementation structures over time.

Outcomes for Youth With Severe Emotional Disturbance: A Repeated Measures Longitudinal Study of a Wraparound Approach of Service Delivery in Systems of Care
Author: Painter, K.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate outcomes for children ages 5–18 experiencing serious emotional disturbances who received Wraparound in a systems of care community funded through a 6-year federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Grant # SM54497-06. This study evaluated the following hypotheses. (1) Youths diagnosed with a SED participating in Wraparound services will experience improved mental health symptoms, improved functioning, and improved behavioral and emotional strengths. (2) Caregivers of youths diagnosed with a serious emotional disturbance participating in Wraparound services will experience decreased levels of caregiver strain. All of the caregiver completed measurement instruments showed statistical and clinical levels of improvement in youth behavioral and emotional strengths, mental health symptoms, and caregiver stress by the 6-month data collection point that was sustained through 24-month.

Quality and Individualization in Wraparound Team Planning (2005)
Author: Walker, J. S., & Schutte, K.
In children’s mental health, collaborative, team-based individualized service planning is most commonly known as Wraparound, and has become one of the primary strategies for improving services and outcomes for children with the highest levels of need. We report on analyses of data gathered at 72 Wraparound team meetings from communities around the United States. We describe the composition of the teams and the quality of the planning process they engaged in, and explore the extent to which these factors were associated with team member satisfaction and the individualization of plans. Teams in our study were numerically dominated by professionals. Parents attended a large majority of meetings, participation by youth and family advocates was frequent, participation by other family members infrequent, and participation by other members of the family’s informal or natural support networks rare. Observed teams varied considerably in the quality of their planning process and the degree of individualization of plans.

Quality Indicators for Multidisciplinary Team Functioning in Community-Based Children
Author: Kutash, K., Acri, M., Pollock, M., Armusewicz, K., Serene Olin, S., Hoagwood, K. E.
The current study examined the organizational social context in 21 community-based programs serving youth at-risk for out-of-home care due to emotional or behavioral disorders and their families and program performance on five quality indicators of team functioning in teams that included a family support specialist. Results indicate that programs with higher performance on structures to facilitate teamwork, informal communication mechanisms among team members, and the ability to integrate family support specialists as equal members of the team showed more positive organizational functioning. Implications for the role of quality indicators in health care reform efforts are discussed.

Review: Implementation Research and Wraparound Literature: Building a Research Agenda
Author: Bertram, R., Suter, J., Bruns, E. J., & O'Rourke, K.
The authors used the framework identified by the National Implementation Research Network’s (NIRN) analysis of 35 years of implementation outcomes literature from diverse fields of endeavor to review the current state of Wraparound implementation research. Model definition, model fidelity and intervention outcomes were areas of relatively greater development, while target population, theory base and theory of change, organizational context and readiness, staff selection, training, supervision or coaching, purveyor selection, and program installation were less examined or even overlooked. They conclude with suggestions for building a research agenda on Wraparound implementation.

The Future of Family Engagement in Residential Care Settings
Author: Affronti, M. L., & Levison-Johnson, J.
Residential programs for children and youth are increasingly implementing engagement strategies to promote family-centered and family-driven models of care (Leichtman, 2008). The practice of engagement is a fairly new area of research, especially in residential care. Prior to implementing a family-centered approach to care, residential administrators and key stakeholders will want to consider the existing knowledge base of evidence-based activities and implementation strategies...Specific recommendations emerged from the synthesis of the literature, and align with current policy and advocacy efforts surrounding family-centered and family-driven care models. It is imperative to note that the dearth of research on family engagement strategies and family-centered models of care does not allow for precise recommendations to be made on individual engagement activities. Broader recommendations are made for service delivery options or program models instead.

The Impact of System of Care Support in Adherence to Wraparound Principles in Child and Family Teams in Child Welfare In North Carolina
Author: Snyder, E. H., Lawrence, C. N., & Dodge, K. A.
North Carolina is one of a growing number of states to implement family meeting models in child welfare as a way to engage families, while simultaneously addressing complex familial needs and child safety issues. However, much is still unknown regarding how family meetings actually operate in child welfare, underscoring a clear need for further evaluation of this process. Utilizing direct observational data of Child and Family Team (CFT) meetings, collected as part of two separate evaluations of the North Carolina Division of Social Service”s Multiple Response System (MRS) and System of Care (SOC) initiatives, the purpose of the current study was to examine whether the support provided by SOC improved fidelity to the CFT model in child welfare. The observations were conducted using the Team Observation Measure consisting of 78 indicators that measure adherence to ten domains associated with high quality family team meetings (e.g., collaborative, individualized, natural supports, outcomes based, strengths-based). Findings indicate that receiving SOC support in child welfare leads to a more collaborative and individualized decision-making process with families. Meeting facilitators in SOC counties were better prepared for CFTs, and had greater ability to lead a more robust and creative brainstorming process to develop a family-driven case plan. The current study also provides a much needed description of the CFT meeting process within child welfare using a direct observational measure.

The Implementation of Wraparoung in California's Title IV-E Child Welfare Waiver Demonstration Project
Author: Ferguson, C. M.
Understanding the implementation of Wraparound in child welfare is essential to its continued use in the field. The purpose of this study was to understand the implementation of Wraparound in regard to organizational and systems-related factors and contexts. Wraparound was implemented and evaluated in five counties as part of California”s Title IV-E Child Welfare Waiver Demonstration Project, from 1999 to 2004. The three areas of inquiry include the models of Wraparound used, important aspects of the implementation efforts, and the interaction between the principles and values of Wraparound and those of the child welfare system. A multiple case study design provided the structure for data collection and analysis. Focus groups with a convenience sample of administrators and direct-service staff from the public agencies and private community-based agencies implementing Wraparound were conducted annually. While the Wraparound models were similar in configuration there were also unique characteristics that developed in response to local conditions. Issues and solutions emerged regarding referrals and case closures, staffing and training, management information systems, funding, and contextual factors. The values and principles of the child welfare departments, group home providers, and families interacted with the values and principles of Wraparound. The results highlight the importance of organization and systems-level characteristics. Building on the solutions developed in California will help to ensure the sustainability of Wraparound.

The National Wraparound Initiative: A Community of Practice Approach to Building Knowledge in the Field of Children's Mental Health
Author: Walker, J. S., Bruns, E. J., Conlan, L., & LaForce, C.
One of the most significant recent trends in the field of children's mental health has been the shift in the conceptualization of authority and expertise. Increasingly, there are demands to recognize and to respond to the perspectives of people who have traditionally been seen more as passive targets of interventions and other change efforts. This has led to a variety of efforts to blend perspectives and/or build partnerships between consumers and providers or between researchers and practitioners. This article explores how a commitment to blending perspectives as a way of providing children's mental health services was a central factor in the emergence of Wraparound, a widely implemented care-planning approach for children with complex needs and their families. The commitment to blending perspectives is also a central organizing principle of the collaborative work of a community of practice called the National Wraparound Initiative (NWI), which has worked to support Wraparound and to generate knowledge about Wraparound practice and implementation. The article goes on to describe some of the benefits, challenges, and tensions that have emerged in the work of the community of practice and to consider what the experience of the NWI may have to offer to others engaged in similar efforts.

The Relationship Between Family Education and Support Services and Parent and Child Outcomes Over Time
Author: Kutash, K., Garraza, L. G., Ferron, J. M., Duchnowski, A. J., Walrath, C., & Green, A. L.
The purpose of the current study is to contribute to the knowledge base on the use of family education and support (FES) services by examining the longitudinal trajectories of FES receipt and multiple domains of child and family functioning. Using an extant data set of more than 9,000 youth and their caregivers, results indicate that families who received FES on entry into services had greater caregiver strain, and their children experienced greater emotional challenges than families who did not receive FES services. Furthermore, for families who received FES, the longitudinal results revealed an immediate effect of seeking additional services, decreasing caregiver strain 6 months after receipt of FES services, and improving child emotional functioning 6 to 18 months after initial receipt of FES services. The complex, lagged effects in the results are discussed in the context of the theorized cyclical course of family stress as exemplified by the Double ABCX model of adjustment and adaptation. Implications for future research of FES services are discussed, especially the need to develop a functional logic model and an operational definition of FES and its components.

What Family Support Specialists Do: Examining Service Delivery
Author: Wisdom, J., Lewandowski, E., Pollock, M., Arci, M., Shorter, P., Olin, S., Armusewicz, K., Horwitz, S., & Hoagwood, K.
This study describes services provided by family support specialists (FSS), peer advocates in programs for children with serious psychiatric conditions, to delineate differences between recommended components of FSS services and services actually provided. An analysis of qualitative interview and observational data and quantitative survey data from 63 staff at 21 mental health programs in New York identified that FSS and other staff have generally similar ideas about FSS services, and that these perceptions of activities are generally congruent with what FSS actually did. Implications of findings are discussed in the context of developing competencies and quality indicators for FSS.
