Facilitator Directory

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.

Chally Grundwag, M.A

Hi there!! My name is Chally. I am currently working as a senior psychology advisor for a non-profit organization, and as a therapist associate in private practice in Menlo Park, CA.
I was first introduced to WRAP in 2015 when I was going through a challenging time in my life, recovering from complex trauma. Ever since I have been using WRAP as the “blue print” for my own wellness journey. I love WRAP because it is a simple, empowering and transformational tool that can be developed by anyone who wants to make a positive change in their lives. It is exciting to be able to introduce this wonderful method to others. I’m looking forwards to facilitate WRAP groups in the Bay Area.
