The WRAP Facilitator Directory offers connection with locally trained and certified WRAP Facilitators who can offer evidence-based practice WRAP workshops in your community. To be listed in this directory, you must have successfully completed the five-day WRAP Facilitator training offered by the Copeland Center or a current Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator of the Copeland Center. Once listed, refresher training requirements must be met to maintain your listing in the directory.
The directory is designed to fill a need for local resource availability for people seeking WRAP groups. The Copeland Center had to make a sizable investment in technology to get the registry up and running. It is primarily designed for Advanced Level WRAP Facilitators to participate by purchasing bulk listings for their trainees. Because it takes investigation into each individual request that does not come directly through an Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator, the Copeland Center has to do detective work to ensure that individuals were properly trained by qualified trainers and this requires a fee. We encourage WRAP Facilitators to request that their trainers contact the Copeland Center to purchase spaces in the registry and therefore eliminate the research required for an individual request and help make it as affordable as possible to both Advanced Level WRAP Facilitators and WRAP Facilitators. If you qualify to be listed in the directory, please contact the organization or Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator who provided your training. Current Advanced Level WRAP® Facilitators who want to list people they have trained and provided refresher course to should contact us for more information.

I am a fourth year McGill student from Ontario majoring in psychology. I first learned about WRAP during a time in my life when I really needed a program just like it. I have learned so much about self compassion and the meaning of wellness and being able to facilitate groups and share that with others has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had. Learning how to manage my own wellness in the process has been an invaluable experience.

Hello! My name is Amanda and I've been in recovery for 5 years, and am still a bit new to all the different tools for recovery. I first discovered WRAP over a year ago during my CPFS training. I love the idea that WRAP can be used for a variety of situations and would like to continue building WRAP for all of the barriers faced in the mental health system. I look forward to sharing and learning more WRAP with others!
