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.
I am a registered nurse at Crestwood Chula Vista and fell in love with WRAP after attending the WRAP I seminar. It has truly changed my life and has allowed me to be more of advocate for myself as well as others. I am excited to learn more and share my love of WRAP with others!
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.
I can only show you how much hope I have for others. The words have already been used. Like minded people will all ways seek each other out. We must propel one another, so not to slip back into our illness. My hope for you is that together we can find your words.
I was originally certified by John Woodruff, B.J. North, and Khatera Aslami in June 18, 2010. I became an Employment Certified Peer Counselor by Recovery Innovations on February 6, 2015 by lived experience; and not through employment training. Prior to becoming a Peer Counselor, I actively advocated for accountability of non-effective services for a year at State level, in Sacramento, Ca., as a ACBHCS Client Stakeholder Representative.

My first introduction to WRAP was seeking help for someone else. I soon realized that I needed WRAP for myself. Since creating and living my own WRAP, I am convinced that it is the key to maintaining the levels of wellness I have achieved. WRAP also helped propel me on a path I had chosen, to help bring wellness to Central Florida by establishing a local chapter of Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance. My most fulfilling WRAP achievement has been to bring Introduction to WRAP to a local correctional facility. We are now expanding into that local community providing continued support and promotion of wellness as the foundation of personal change. I am exceedingly grateful for the personal fulfillment I have received in sharing WRAP with others and excited for the life changes that lie ahead. I am available to bring WRAP to you and your organizations.

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.
My first introduction to WRAP was through my own personal journey of healing. WRAP became more than a way of planning, more than a way of thinking for me; it became a foundation for my entire life. WRAP works! As I later became a mental health professional, I sought training in WRAP in order to more firmly incorporate the ideas and methods of WRAP into my work and to bring the knowledge of WRAP to others.
I became a WRAP facilitator because my WRAP plans and WRAP support system help me to thrive as I live my complicated life. I am also passionate about helping college students to thrive as they navigate complications in their lives while they work on their college studies.
