Pilot Testing of the Wraparound Fidelity Index, Version 4

Download Handouts: 380kb pdf

Presenting: Eric Bruns; April Sather

All Authors for this paper: Eric Bruns; April Sather

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: Recent specification of the wraparound process has facilitated revision of the Wraparound Fidelity Index (WFI) to focus on whether key wraparound activities are actually occurring in practice. The WFI-4, uses interviews with four parents/caregivers, wraparound facilitators, youths, and team members to assess adherence to the specified activities of the wraparound process, as well as the 10 principles of wraparound. In this presentation, we will present results of an initial pilot test conducted in over 10 communities nationally, including psychometrics of the WFI-4, a profile of adherence to wraparound nationally, and results of focus groups with evaluators and family members who used the WFI-4.

Pilot Testing of Three New Wraparound Fidelity Measures

Download Handouts: 108kb pdf

Presenting: Jim Rast; Eric Bruns

All Authors for this paper: Jim Rast; Eric Bruns; April Sather

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: The presentation will describe the development of three new tools that are being used to do comprehensive wraparound fidelity assessments through (1) interviewing primary participants in the process about how wraparound has been implemented, (2) observing team meetings, and (3) reviewing documentation for specific families enrolled in the wraparound initiative. The presentation will describe each of the tools individually, present pilot data from three sites, and describe a process of measure refinement based on initial pilot tests and feedback from use.

Assessing System Supports for Wraparound: The Community Supports for Wraparound Inventory

Presenting: Janet Walker; Eric Bruns; Jim Rast

All Authors for this paper: Janet Walker; Eric Bruns; Jim Rast

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: This presentation describes the development and initial pilot testing of the Community Supports for Wraparound Inventory (CSWI), a survey tool that assesses the adequacy of the implementation context for wraparound. A workgroup from the National Wraparound Initiative worked collaboratively to refine the structure of the tool and the constituent items. The draft CSWI was then reviewed by 41 experts representing the diversity of roles in wraparound implementation. Based on quantitative and open-ended feedback, the CSWI was revised and subsequently pilot tested. This session will present data relevant to the development of the CSWI and pilot data from five communities nationally.

Developing Measures for Wraparound Implementation

We're sorry, handouts are not available for this presentation.

Session Number: 41 Room: Salon A

Presenting: Eric Bruns; Knute Rotto

All Authors for this paper: Eric Bruns; Knute Rotto

Presentation Type: brief symposium

Synopsis: This presentation will represent papers discussing development of tools to measure wraparound implementation fidelity. The first presentation will present pilot data, psychometrics, and feedback from pilot sites on the Wraparound Fidelity Index, version 4 (WFI 4.0). The second presentation will present pilot data on three new tools that assess wraparound fidelity from multiple perspectives. These include a Team Observation Measure, a Documentation Review, and a Process Interview. The third presentation presents background and pilot data for the Community Supports for Wraparound Inventory (CSWI) which measures the presence (or absence) of necessary system supports to implement and sustain wraparound.
