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.

Hi my name is Paulene McRae and WRAP is woven into my everyday life. After being introduced to WRAP as a means to help me deal with anxieties related to my new visual impairment and traumas from my past, I realized I had been using techniques from WRAP prior to even knowing it existed. I live near Nashville and would love to have the opportunity to co-facilitate WRAP within and in areas near my community. There is no limit to using this program. Our best life is out there, we just have to take control of our wellness. I am willing to help anyone along their journey. Helping others only makes me better. If there’s any way I can assist you feel free to contact me.
Rachael was born in London, England to Jamaican parents and moved to Jamaica as a child. She graduated college in Jamaica and moved to South Florida thirty years ago. Her wide cultural experiences in Jamaica played a large part in her own self-development and career choices. As a mother of teens, her house was the one where the teenagers gathered to hang out, to receive her special brand of mothering and guidance and her home cooked meals. Growing close to many teens experiencing major life challenges, addiction, mental health challenges, traumas, Rachael felt a strong need to move into an arena where she could help young people and their families cope better with their life challenges.
