Our goal is to increase the availability of high fidelity wraparound to youths and families who need it. We do this by offering trainings, workshops, consultations, and certifications to help agencies provide high quality, high fidelity wraparound. At the core of all of our training and learning community building efforts are our textbooks. They contain the basics, craft knowledge, activities, personal and professional wisdom accumulated over decades of wraparound experience, and everything you need to certify staff members in particular wraparound positions. For agencies looking to increase their training efficacy and retention, we also offer a complete set of training DVDs that take a family all the way through the wraparound process.
Vroon VDB creates high quality, research driven textbooks for each of the core professional wraparound positions. These textbooks represent decades of wraparound learning and experience, and are at the core of the certification process. They are designed to be used as self-paced primary knowledge sources, as the central element for a group coaching class, or in peer-to-peer coaching. Each book comes with exercises, group activities, reflection questions, and certification skill demonstration guidelines. For extra training efficiency and support, consider the textbooks in conjunction with the Miriam’s Family Wraparound Training DVD set.

Shadowing and the accompanying discussion is one of the core activities of VVDB wraparound certification. We learn best when we learn about something, see it in action, then discuss what we’ve seen. While live shadowing can be a powerful experience, it often helps for coaches and supervisors to know exactly what their trainees have seen. Then they can prepare themselves and the trainees for the experience before hand, and have a tailor made set of questions and prompts to start the debriefing process.
How can you know exactly what will happen in a wraparound session with a family? By having it on tape. The Miriam’s Family DVDs are a complete set of wraparound exercises from the beginning of the process to the end. They showcase the uniqueness of wraparound, the struggles to individualize with a family, while conforming exactly to the best practices of wraparound. With the Miriam’s Family DVDs, your coaches can use their time the most efficiently, and your new staff members will learn how to do wraparound from the best.
