Wraparound Follow-Up Training II: Deepening our understanding of Vision, Needs and Benchmarks (6 Hours)

The Wraparound elements of Vision and Needs are often grasped well when explained, but can be challenging to discover when working with families.  Goals are often mistaken for Vision and services are often mistaken for Needs. The intent of this training is to teach skills to discover Vision and Needs, to differentiate them from other items, and to effectively apply them in an Action Plan. Building on these skills, the training will explore how to utilize Benchmarks to gauge the effectiveness of an Action Plan and honor the outcome-based value of Wraparound.

Wraparound Follow-Up Training III: Teaming and Conflict Resolution (6 Hours)

Youth and families often rely on teams that are composed of mostly, if not only, formal supports. However, natural and informal supports are key in transitioning and maintaining families out of systems. The first part of this session will focus on teaching effective strategies in developing diverse Wraparound teams.  The second part will address the conflict that occurs in teams, especially as they grow.  Participants will explore how to manage conflict in the context of the Wraparound approach and how to use it to build an effective Action Plan.
