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.
I stand by the power of WRAP and each individual to define their own recovery and achieve it. My own recovery has been a lifelong process I will continually work on, but the great strides I made from WRAP have given me so much insight and growth. My goal is to work with diverse populations and provide a supportive mutual learning environment so everyone can reach their full potential. My number one goal is to provide HOPE and to EMPOWER. My work has lead me to serve people with disabilities and those experiencing homelessness, and I have been called to work with those looking to improve their mental wellness.
I was introduced to the WRAP program in 2007 through my employer. WRAP has become a vital tool in my life, helping me gain control of my life challenges and allowing me to face them head on. Because of the benefits I've found with developing my own personal plan, I am passionate about the WRAP program, and want to share my experiences with others so that they can live their lives to the fullest. I consider this program to be my “playbook,” and would like to help others find the value of WRAP for themselves. I am an Occupational Therapy Assistant working in a mental health setting, with 10 year experience.
