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.  

Find International Facilitators

Rona McBrierty is an international WRAP facilitator mentor from Edinburgh, Scotland
Rona says: from leading 2 decades of my adult life heavily dependent on services where my life had become limited by other people’s kindness, I have been able to slowly but surely taken back responsibility for my own life becoming the expert of me. WRAP  has supported me to change my life. I have learned  to be more intentional in the way I lead my life. I have learnt to trust my decisions and this has allowed me to actively work towards my goals. Through working with others and being part of the process of co facilitating WRAP workshops I have the privilege of seeing people connect with their own wisdom and feel empowered to make positive changes.
