The WRAP Co-Facilitator Directory offers a connection with locally trained and certified WRAP Co-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 in-person WRAP Co-Facilitator training offered by the Copeland Center or a current Advanced Level WRAP Co-Facilitator of the Copeland Center. Once listed, refresher training requirements must be met to maintain your listing in the directory. Due to COVID certification current as of January 1, 2020, will be maintained.
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 Co-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 Co-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 Co-Facilitators and WRAP Co-Facilitators. If you qualify to be listed in the directory, please contact the organization or Advanced Level WRAP Co-Facilitator who provided your training. Current Advanced Level WRAP® Co-Facilitators who want to list people they have trained and provided refresher courses should contact us for more information.
Hello everyone, My name is Jen and I was recently certified as a WRAP Facilitator. I am from the Pittsburgh, PA area and have worked as a Certified Peer Specialist for the last 4 years in Westmoreland County. I am passionate about helping others in their recovery journey. I'm at my best when I am able to speak from the heart - using my personal experiences, struggles, and wellness tools to empower and support others as they work on their own personal recovery.
My name is Jennifer Mc Donnell and I am an experienced Trainer and Facilitator of 20 years working with groups and individuals to become more included in society. I initially came to WRAP to use it as a tool to help and support people I work with. I really enjoyed the WRAP 1 program as I connected with the key concepts particularly personal responsibility and was able to use the tips and techniques to benefit my own life. After completing the WRAP Facilitator training, I developed my existing skills to support me in the work I do. I believe passionately in WRAP, that everyone can tap into it to support their wellness and make positive changes in their lives.
