Online WRAP Facilitator Renewal Course
This course was designed to give people a chance to meet WRAP Facilitator Refresher Training requirements without leaving home. It is ideal for people who might like a slower paced training to with lots of time between meetings to review material and absorb more, make stronger connections with participants and the facilitator, and be able to fit it into your schedule. Cost associated with travel, lodging, meals, etc., are eliminated making the training more affordable. It also allows people an opportunity to complete the course that would otherwise be difficult because of work or personal commitments.
Course will meet from on Fridays from 2:00-4:30pm EST/1:00-3:30pm CST/12:00-2:30pm MST/11:00-1:30pm PST on:4/18, 4/25, 5/2, 5/9, 5/30, 6/6, and 6/13
Our “live” sessions will be arranged through the GoToMeeting website. If you have a camera on your computer, iPad, etc., you will be able to put your face with your name and voice for the group. This is helpful for interaction, but if you do not have a camera you can still participate. You will however need access to a computer and the internet to participate in this course. We have found that it is not as effective or cohesive for people to use their phones and call in to the meeting.
Participation during the call will be done through the chat window and if you have a microphone, voice! Don’t worry, if you have not used this method before you will learn how it works during an orientation.
Materials required for the course. Please have these on hand before the start of the course:
1. WRAP Plus by Mary Ellen Copeland - You can find the book for $19.95 at: http://wrapandrecoverybooks.com/store/
2. WRAP Facilitator Manual from 2009 or later. You should have received a manual when you took your WRAP Facilitator Training. If you took your training prior to 2009 or you no longer have your manual, you will need to purchase a new manual for the course.

4. Daily Evaluation & Overall Evaluation
We have worked hard to develop an agenda that we hope provides information you find helpful. Your feedback is important as we continue to grow and expand WRAP and search for ways to meet people’s needs. At the end of each session you will be asked to complete an evaluation on-line. On the last day we will ask you to again provide feedback but it will be an overall evaluation.
5. Knowledge Assessment
You will be asked to complete a Knowledge Assessment on mental health recovery and WRAP. This is not a test and will not be graded. It is a tool to use in determining everyone’s knowledge base about WRAP and know what information most people have a strong understanding of and what information would be helpful to spend more time discussing. Again, this is not a test however you are required to complete the assessment.
“I think this WRAP Refresher course in totality is excellent. I want to say it is because of the quality and what is that exactly. (1) The expertise of the instructors on the WRAP material (master's level-- beyond advanced). (2) Fidelity to the Model of WRAP Delivery AND (3) Not too tepid to correct us gently.” --Participant in the Online Refresher
