Wraparound in Indian Country: The Ways of the People are Who We Are
The Wraparound Model is a complex, multifaceted intervention strategy designed to keep young people at home and in their community and out of institutions whenever possible. It has been shown effective in both behavioral health and justice systems in American Indian/Alaska Native Communities. As the name suggests, this strategy involves “wrapping” a comprehensive array of individualized services and support networks “around” young people, rather than forcing them to enroll in pre-determined, inflexible treatment programs (Portland State University Research and Training Center, 2003).
OJJDP and EDC Tribal Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center (TYTTAC) invite you to learn how the Wraparound Model fuses traditional teachings of Tribal communities with a process that provides individualized services and supports tailored to meet the needs of Tribal youth and their families. Using their experience in implementing this model in Indian Country, Deb Painte, Executive Director, Native American Training Institute and Joe Walker, Evaluator, Native American Training Institute, discuss how the Wraparound Model is different from standard treatment approaches, how Wraparound is appropriate for Tribal youth in the juvenile justice system and their families and how the model can be incorporated into the Tribal Juvenile Justice system.
