The Co-Facilitator Directory offers a connection with locally trained and Copeland Center-recognized Co-Facilitators who can offer peer-support groups on wellness and recovery in your community. To be listed in this directory, you must have successfully completed the five-day in-person Co-Facilitator training offered by the Copeland Center or a current Advanced Level Co-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 wellness and recovery 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 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 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 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 Copeland Center-recognized Co-Facilitators. If you qualify to be listed in the directory, please contact the organization or an Advanced Level Co-Facilitator who provided your training. Current Advanced Level Co-Facilitators who want to list people they have trained and provided refresher courses should contact us for more information.
