This course explores the concept of the whole community as a resource. It begins by exploring state-of-the-art approaches to community support services and treatment planning. Within the treatment planning process, it looks at how a wraparound approach to service delivery individualizes and strengthens outcomes in community-based services, by addressing both client skill and support needs. "Traditional" community resources such as entitlement programs, housing, education, vocational rehabilitation, legal, medical and social services are covered. However, the course emphasizes the need for practitioners to go beyond 'traditional' resources and to help individuals identify and access non-agency oriented community supports and services in order to promote community integration and membership.
