Title: "I Can't Stop This Feeling": Crisis Prevention Planning

Presenters: Cherra Barbour-Smith, LPC, UMFS and Brandi Tinsley, MSSW, UMFS
Presentation: ICantStopThisFeeling.pdf

Crisis Prevention Plans are a critical part of the HFW process. Most of the youth and families we work with experience crisis on a daily basis. Join us for a workshop on how to proactively plan with your families on how to keep families together safely. We will focus on the Functional Behavioral Assessment preparation work and how to plan together as a team.

Title: Identifying Functional Strengths Across Life Domains

Presenter: Dave Ozias, Youth and Family Training Institute
Presentation: IdentifyingFuctionalStrengths.pdf

One of the core principles of High Fidelity Wraparound is 'Strength-based'. The HFW process builds on the strengths and abilities of the youth and family, which is the foundation for successful change. Oftentimes, providers and family members refer to strengths as what they can see, such as 'creative' or 'motivated'. In this breakout session we will focus on understanding other ways to describe the strengths of a youth and/or family that can help the team identify who the youth and family really are. These descriptions are critical when developing a plan that will work

Title: Implementing Evidenced-Based Practice Within Wraparound and Systems of Care

Presenter: Eric J. Bruns, Ph.D., Professor, University of Washington School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Co-Director, National Wraparound Initiative and National Wraparound Implementation Center
Presentation: ImplementingEvidencedBasedPractice.pdf

Wraparound has established itself as a standard of care for children and youth with complex needs and their families. However, for Wraparound to succeed, organizations and systems must have certain features in place. Among these, Wraparound teams must have access to a comprehensive array of effective services and supports. This session will review feasible approaches to implementing evidence-based practices (EBP) in the context of Wraparound care coordination. Topics will include (1) the most common clinical needs of Wraparound-enrolled youth; (2) EBPs that are best tailored to meet these needs; (3) how to use "common element" approaches to EBP to flexibly meet needs; and (4) system management, workforce development, and supervision strategies

Title: Maintaining Natural Supports Through the Process and Beyond

Presenter: Dave Ozias, Youth and Family Training Institute
Presentation: MaintainingNaturalSupports.pdf

We all know the benefit of natural supports and we can be creative identifying them; but once we have them recognized, what next? Relationships require ongoing maintenance and nurturing to endure and grow. In this session, we will look through the four phases of High Fidelity Wraparound and focus on how everyone can benefit from their relationship. We have learned how to build the self-efficacy in the youth and families, now we will turn our attention to the self-efficacy of the natural supports. Neglected or one-sided relationships quickly go cold. Working relationships, require varied forms of repeat contact to remain vibrant and productive

Title: Open Table: A Model to Build Natural Supports that Transforms Communities

Presenter: Angie Williams, Open Table
Presentation: OpenTable.pdf

Using lessons learned from the first year of Open Table implementation in Virginia, this session will talk about how to use the social capital of your community to build natural supports. The Open Table model began as a group mentoring movement in the faith community. Over the years, it has expanded to become a partnership of shared purpose among all community sectors to create long-term sustainable relationships for those who need natural supports.

Title: Self-Care for Cultivating Resilience

Presenter: Molly Yates, LCSW, Director, Integrated Care Project, Region Ten Community Services Board
Presentation: SelfCareforCultivatingResilience.pdf

Why is self-care critically important to our roles as treatment providers and even increasingly considered a "professional responsibility'? We will discuss the research behind the importance of self-care and strategies for developing these important skills for ourselves and the people we serve. The end goal is one of maintaining longevity and building resilience in order to thrive in daily life and successfully recover from stressful events and adverse episodes.

Title: Supervising the High Fidelity Wraparound Workforce; Using Coaching Skills and the HFW Model to Inform Weekly Supervision

Presenter: Karen Grabowski, LPC, Middle Peninsula Northern Neck CSB
Presentation: SupervisingtheHighFidelity.pdf

Supervising High Fidelity Wraparound (HFW) is not like "typical" clinical supervision. Participants will learn about the importance of incorporating HFW principles, phases, and the theory of change into their regular supervision. Participants will learn about the coaching circuit and discuss strategies for integrating coaching techniques during group or individual supervision of the HFW workforce. Participants will then discuss the potential benefits for the workforce and the families served through Intensive Care Coordination when supervision is informed by the coaching skills and the HFW model.

Title: Team Accountability in the HFW Process

Presenter: Molly Rafferty, MA, Credentialed HFW Facilitator and Intake Support Specialist, UMFS and Sharon Dennehy, FSP, UMFS
Presentation: TeamAccountability.pdf

Do you ever feel that your team members are not on the same page? Does your team struggle to complete action steps and follow the plan? You are not alone. Participants in this session will have the opportunity to discuss common barriers to progress and communication. The session will focus on how Family Support Partners and Intensive Care Coordinators can collaborate to create family-friendly processes and build a culture of accountability on High Fidelity Wraparound teams.

Title: The Art of Brainstorming

Presenter: Rachelle Butler, LCSW UMFS
Presentation: TheArtofBrainstorming.pdf

Brainstorming is a skill. It is also a vital part of the HFW process. This training will give facilitators tools to help them lead robust brainstorming sessions with the youth and families they work with. The session will borrow from innovation engineering and other brainstorming tools to help facilitators leave the training with tangible tools to use in their practice.

Title: Tools for Discovering Strengths and Needs in High Fidelity Wraparound

Presenters: Crystal Lantz, LPC; Ellen Krag, LPC; Josh Kaufman-Horner, LPC; and Shayla Ferris, MA, High Fidelity Wraparound Team, Region Ten Community Services Board.

Presentation: ToolsforDiscoveringStrengthsandNeeds2.pdf
Presentation: ToolsforDiscoveringStrengthsandNeeds3.pdf

Intensive Care Coordinators know the key principles of High Fidelity Wraparound but how does one go about the intentional implementation of strengths based, family focused, and culturally competent practices? Presenters from Region Ten Community Services Board's HFW Team will share resources and tools created in the development of their HFW practice model through interactive learning opportunities. Participants will leave with concrete examples and tools to aid in HFW implementation

Title: What Families Really Need

Presenter: Robin Church, Family Services Specialist CMHRC
Presentation: WhatFamiliesReallyNeed.pdf

During this workshop, you will gain knowledge of "what a family really needs" while going through the process of helping them reach their vision. Using her lived experience, Robin learned what she needed from providers in the community. Being honest and venerable at a time that was embarrassing, confusing and scary. "I didn't know what I needed, I only knew the hardship my family was going through" So what does it take to peel back that onion? Let's talk about the difficulties a family is going through and how do we get there?
