National Wraparound Initiative (Current and Achived Webinars )

NWI

In 2004, stakeholders— including families, youth, providers, researchers, trainers, administrators and others— came together in a collaborative effort to better specify the wraparound practice model, compile specific strategies and tools, and disseminate information about how to implement wraparound in a way that can achieve positive outcomes for youth and families.

Organization Website: http://www.nwi.pdx.edu/

The National Wraparound Initiate provides a series of web-based trainings and technical assistance sessions about high-quality wraparound implementation, and the organizational and system supports that facilitate it.
