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.

Cheryl Sharp holds the unique perspective of a person who has recovered from significant mental health challenges, a trauma survivor, a family member of a loved one who died as a result of mental health challenges, and a provider of substance abuse and mental health services. Sharp received her undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Women’s Studies followed by her Master’s Degree of Social Work specializing in health and aging. Sharp has worked with adult trauma survivors for over 33 years training and speaking internationally on trauma-informed approaches and suicide prevention.
As a young child in his first school days Chris’s teacher noted how he had supported a fellow student who was struggling and overwhelmed by emotional challenges. Through his own traumatic life experiences he had begun developing awareness and coping skills that he was able to share with his peers. Later on in his secondary school (teen years) he was chosen to be part of a group trained as “peer counselors” in the late 70’s. After years of food and retail management Chris realized he wanted to use his life skills as a support person for individuals struggling with integration and challenging behaviors. The past twelve years have found him employed as a professional peer support person and advocate and also a yoga instructor at a consumer operated peer support center. Trauma awareness and the myriad of coping skills we are capable of developing for survival inform his world view. The belief in hope, balance and re-alignment as natural processes keep his focus on wellness, both in his own life and for those he supports.
