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.

My name is Ken Timmerman. I have dealt with mental health challenges from an early age. After a very traumatic experience I had my first suicide attempt. I started drinking at age ten.I quit drinking when I was 20 but the strong feelings came back with a vengeance.
Once I had a very small life and now thanks to WRAP, I have a very big life! I believe that wholeness is our birthright, our natural state of being! So when I found myself feeling really alone because I suffered from mental health difficulties, addiction issues, other health challenges, including morbid obesity, I started to lose hope. This was an awful way to feel because it's also my belief that a life lived without HOPE can make the heart sick. This state was negatively affecting all 8 Dimensions of my Wellness. My emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual life was in crisis. Suddenly, I was sick and tired of being sick and tired!
