Facilitator Directory

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 WRAP journey started in 2015 when I was introduced to it as a professional. Not only did I establish a wellbeing service for children and young people in England that continues to support 6 years later, I discovered a wellness strategy that translated my lifelong partnership with self-care and peer support. WRAP strategies continue me to be well, despite challenges through life i have faced as a child and adult.

Pamela Rodriguez

I’m a person that wants to be happy and help others to be happy! BORICUA! I’m native from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. But I moved to the state of Florida on 2017 when Hurricane Maria hit the island. Since I was a child, my biggest dream is to be able to help other people, fight against the injustices, and find a way to feel free and help others feel free. Yes, in my journey, I have had been struggling with being free and happy and I learned to be. That’s why I want to help others in their path.

I am so excited about this new journey that I am taking in life. I grew up as a very troubled youth, I had several challenges in my young adult life but I am so grateful that today I can honestly say that I am not the same person I once was. My whole life has changed and I know without a doubt that it is possible and obtainable for any one who truly is willing to work for it.
