Wraparound in Oklahoma for Children in Child Welfare Custody: Results of a Randomized Study

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

Presenting: Jim Rast; John Vetter; Jeri Poplin

All Authors for this paper: Jim Rast; John Vetter; Jeri Poplin

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: This paper reports on a randomized study of the wraparound process for children and youth in the custody of child welfare in Oklahoma. Results found that the wraparound groups had significantly better permanency, stability, wellness, behavioral, and family outcomes than the control group. Behavioral health services expenses were also lower for the wraparound groups. Results are discussed in terms of implementation challenges and lessons learned for implementing wraparound for children and youth in the child welfare system.

All Authors for this paper: Lucille Eber; Kelly Hyde

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: A key feature of School-Wide Positive Behavioral Support is the ongoing use of data to guide interventions at all levels including the tertiary tier which includes the wraparound process for students with complex needs. Historically, community-based wraparound teams have not used data to guide decision-making. This presentation will present outcomes of a 2006 evaluation, and discuss how PBIS efforts in Illinois have targeted a paradigm shift around the use of individual student data in schools.

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: This retrospective study examines data on 176 youth who participated in wraparound. Analysis focused on relationships between three different outcome indicators and both client and service related variables. Results indicated that adherence to several key elements of wraparound, as measured by the Wraparound Fidelity Index, was associated with improved functioning, goal attainment, and successful transition from residential to home care. Having a higher number of collateral supports at discharge was also associated with successful outcomes.

Session Number: 27 Room: Salon C

Presenting: Janet Walker; Eric Bruns

All Authors for this paper: Janet Walker; Eric Bruns

Presentation Type: brief symposium

Synopsis: The wraparound process is a team-based, collaborative process for developing and implementing individualized care plans for children with complex needs and their families. Wraparound is being applied in increasingly diverse settings, and the research base on its impact continues to develop. This symposium presents three outcomes studies, conducted in the context of child welfare, education, and mental health systems. The aims, design, and results of these studies provide an interesting reflection of the diversity of research efforts underway in the area of the wraparound process, and point to the broad range of relevant research questions inspired by wraparound. The discussant will comment on the contributions made by these studies to the overall wraparound research base, and areas in which continued research and evaluation is needed.
