Wraparound (services)

A complex, multifaceted intervention strategy designed to keep delinquent individuals out of institutions whenever possible. This strategy involves “wrapping” a comprehensive array of individualized services and support networks “around” individuals, rather than forcing them to enrol in pre-determined, inflexible treatment programs (Walker and Schutte, 2003).
