Marianne holds a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from Whitman College. Through her work with the Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team, Marianne is committed to improving mental health care for children across all settings, including in the home and at school. Her other research interests include early childhood social-emotional learning, and how children’s understandings of social categories are shaped by the people and information they are exposed to. In particular, Marianne explores topics related to how children come to learn gender stereotypes and racial bias.
The purpose of this project is to develop and test a Tier-3 team-based Wraparound (T3W) intervention package for schools. Researchers will carry out their study in three phases. In the first phase, they will iteratively adapt the existing Wraparound model for use in elementary schools. In the second phase, they will test the feasibility of the revised intervention in elementary settings. In the third phase, they will complete a pilot test to evaluate the promise of the intervention, and with gather cost information. The project will yield a complete T3W intervention package, including training and coaching curricula, guidelines for districts and schools, supervisor supports, fidelity measures, and data systems, as well as preliminary evidence of the promise of positive outcomes.
