GETTYSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - April 17, 2017) - The term "wraparound" was first coined in the 1980's and has been defined in many different ways. The term has been used to described as a philosophy, a treatment approach, and set of services. In recent years, wraparound has been utilized and defined as an intensive, individualized care planning, delivery, and management process. At its core, the wraparound process is an intensive, holistic process for engaging with children and families with complex needs. The wraparound process seeks to achieve positive outcomes for families, caregivers, siblings, and the child. In addition, the wraparound process also targets goals that would increase problem solving, behavioral change, and family social supports.

Although initially the wraparound process was used in conjunction with residential care, today we find its use is being directed to avoid congregate care in favor of stabilizing children in a community setting. Wraparound services are also being utilized by managed care organizations in partnership with providers to achieve better outcomes.
