Wraparound Process User's Guide / "Manual de Usuario del Proceso del Wraparound (Asistencia Integral)" 

This is a professionally translated version of the "Wraparound Process User's Guide," originally published in English. This guide from the National Wraparound Initiative (NWI) provides a comprehensive description of what a family can expect from the wraparound process. The guide can also serve as an introduction to wraparound for service providers, policy makers, and other stakeholders. The guide draws on previous work of the NWI, particularly the description of the phases and activities of the wraparound process. As a result, the guide is intended for use in any community that uses a wraparound process consistent with the NWI guidelines.
