Synopsis: This paper reports on three field evaluations of the impact of coaching on the fidelity of wraparound as measured by the Wraparound Fidelity Index and VVDB practitioner credentialing tools. The first study compared the level of fidelity following training and then the level following coaching for 18 facilitators in a community mental health system. The second study was done in Nevada as part of a controlled evaluation of the impact of wraparound compared to practice as usual for 67 children and youth in the child welfare system. A multiple baseline design with initial training followed by field based coaching was used to assess the impact of fidelity. In this study a comparison of youth outcomes was also done. In the third field evaluation two groups of staff were assigned to training plus immediate coaching versus training plus delayed coaching for children and youth who were being diverted or transitioned from residential care. This study compared the impact on fidelity and time to demonstrating basic skills as measured by the 10 VVDB practitioner credentialing measures.
