Help NWI and the Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team

April 09, 2019 | Emily Taylor

The University of Washington Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team (WERT), the “accountability wing” of NWI, is currently conducting a comprehensive review and meta-analysis of controlled outcome studies focused on the Wraparound process.

Having conducted a thorough search of peer-reviewed literature, such as journal articles, they are seeking help from colleagues in the field to identify outcome studies published in other formats or outlets, such as newsletters, evaluation reports, or government documents (often referred to as “grey literature”).

If you know of research that falls into this category, they would greatly appreciate your assistance. They are specifically looking for unpublished studies that fit the following criteria:

  • An evaluation of Wraparound that used a control group design (experimental or quasi—experimental);
  • The basic principles of Wraparound were in place to support youth between 3 and 21 years of age;
  • Measured outcomes related to living situation, mental health, youth functioning, and/or youth assets and resiliency.

If you know of and/or have access to any unpublished materials that meet these criteria, we would greatly appreciate it if you would contact our project lead, Jonathan Olson, at jro10@uw.edu with whatever information you may have.
