Wraparound Process and Team Facilitation Fundamentals

The Wraparound Fundamentals Workshop is intended for care coordinators, service facilitators, and team members who wish to learn the fundamentals of the wraparound process used in Coordinated Services Team Initiatives and Comprehensive Community Services, with an emphasis on care coordination and team facilitation responsibilities and skills.

Through hands-on activities, participants will learn how to guide multi-agency, parent and youth-centered teams though the process of completing a strength-based assessment, plan of care, plan for crisis, and transition out of the formal team process.
