Getting Wraparound and Not the Runaround
Jesse Suter to present webinar May 21
- By Michaella Maley Collins
Jesse Suter, faculty member at the Center on Disability and Community Inclusion/UVM will be presenting a free webinar on the Wraparound planning process. The webinar, hosted by Vermont Family Network, will take place Wednesday, May 21, at 10 am. Registration is required.
Wraparound is a planning process designed to help families reach their goals and support their children to be safe and successful in their homes, schools, and communities. Introduced in the 1980s, Vermont was one of the first states to use this approach to support families. Since then there has been tremendous growth nationally in our understanding of what makes wraparound effective. Unfortunately, because it’s a flexible approach some teams are called “wraparound” but don’t live up to the principles and recommended process, and at worst might just be giving folks the runaround. In this webinar, Jesse Suter will share the latest information on what wraparound is, what it’s not, how it's effective, and share ideas for how families can help make sure they’re getting wraparound and not the runaround.
Dr. Suter's projects and research focus on wraparound and related interdisciplinary school and community-based interventions for youth with emotional and behavioral challenges.
