WERT has just published a comprehensive review of wraparound research from 1986-2014.
We are excited to announce the release of the revised Team Observation Measure, the TOM 2.0! WERT's goal was to create a reliable and valid measure of adherence to the Wraparound principles and key elements that is less burdensome and more sensitive to different elements of Wraparound practice implementation. In the revision, WERT was able to remove redundant items, make the language clearer and more consistent, remove non-essential items that showed little variability on the original TOM, and separate the assessment of facilitation skills from fidelity to the Wraparound model.
To Our Valued WFAS Collaborators:
Greetings from Seattle and the University of Washington!
As you know, the mission of the UW Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team is to assist implementation of the Wraparound process and evaluate its effectiveness. We also strive to help collaborating wraparound initiatives and systems of care achieve continuous quality improvement, identify needs for technical assistance and training, and communication with their stakeholders about their successes.
