Wraparound is an intensive, holistic method of engaging with individuals with complex needs (most typically children, youth, and their families) so that they can live in their homes and communities and realize their hopes and dreams. Wraparound has been most commonly conceived of as an intensive, individualized care planning and management process. The wraparound process aims to achieve positive outcomes by providing a structured, creative and individualized team planning process that, compared to traditional treatment planning, results in plans that are more effective and more relevant to the child and family. It targets the needs of the child or youth with significant involvement with multiple child serving systems that has identified behavioral and/or emotional treatment needs and is also likely at risk of out of home placement.
