Presentation Type: topical discussion

Synopsis: This discussion will trace the transformation of the family involvement leading to the definition of family-driven care and the development of procedures and tools, such as the AmbassadorÕs Guide to Family-driven Care and the National Wraparound InitiativeÕs specification of the family/parent partner role, to insure its implementation with fidelity on a broad scale. A statewide and local example of effective implementation of family-driven care will illustrate this paradigm shift. The Federation of Families for ChildrenÕs Mental Health will describe its efforts to evaluate the effectiveness of the AmbassadorÕs Guide followed by open discussion with participants.
