This three-part series will focus on the Hope Stage of the Workaround process. Frequently neglected in the training cycle, ending the wraparound process in a way that works well for families and team members alike can be a challenge. This series will explore a framework that emphasizes new beginnings rather than endings.

Session 1: April 12, 2021 1 – 2:30 PM

Effective transition away from an intensive planning process is built on work that happens earlier in the process. This session will examine the “throughputs” in the Wraparound process and how they are critical to setting the foundation for an effective Hope Stage

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will identify how the key elements of an effective transition are impacted by the quality of work with key process elements and tools of wraparound planning in earlier stages

2. Participants will examine quality markers from earlier stages that are useful in preparing for and timing the Hope Stage

Session 2: April 19, 2021 1 – 2:30 PM

This session will examine the challenges inherent in deciding when to move to the Hope stage for individual teams and tools for anticipating and managing these challenges. Tools ranging from the review of benchmark data to simple conversations to hold to build readiness for ending will be examined.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will examine steps for developing and utilizing data from effective benchmarks as a tool for determining the timing of the transition to the Hope stage

2. Participants will expand their repertoire of questions and conversations useful in helping family and team members have a strong sense of hope for an effective future as Wraparound ends

Session Three: April 26, 2021 1 – 2:30 PM

This session will focus on the meeting processes that can support a successful Hope Stage for an individual family and team. The focus will be on what facilitators can do in the meeting to support a focus shift from ending Wraparound to celebrating the new beginning this represents.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will learn potential agenda content for the team meetings that occur during the Hope stage of wraparound

2. Participants will develop a personalized development plan for implementing new approaches to the Hope stage in individual teams they facilitate
