VVDB Products

Our goal is to increase the availability of high fidelity Wraparound and MiiWrap to youth and families who need it.  We do this by offering trainings, workshops, consultations, and certification to help agencies provide high quality, high fidelity MiiWrap. At the core of all our training, coaching and community building efforts are our textbooks.  They contain the basics, craft knowledge, activities, personal and professional wisdom accumulated over decades of Wraparound and MiiWrap experience, and everything you need to certify staff members in particular Wraparound and MiiWrap 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 and are preparing a companion set of videos for our new MiiWrap Textbook.

You can buy any of our textbooks in our storefront here.
