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 an experienced facilitator, full of creative ideas and interest in being with others who gather for the sake of owning their life, recovery and wellness.
Hello! I'm passionate about the work I do with under-served populations, including those battling addictions, survivors of trauma, and those who experience the ups and downs of mental health. I recently discovered WRAP and I'm excited about how I can use WRAP in my own personal life, as well as share this valuable tool with others to help them feel more empowered!

I am a survivor of a lived experience from addiction. However, it is a battle everyday. I choose to have a WRAP plan because I do know that my disease won't just go away. In fact there are many times I can't appreciate my successes right in front of me because my disease has somehow taken over the way I think. Luckily I have a wellness tool box as well that I can pull things from in order to get me out of a funk. I look forward to doing a WRAP facilitation soon. You too can recover and be the best that you can be!
