WRAP Facilitation is a training program developed and implemented by the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery based on ongoing consultation with Mary Ellen Copeland, her associates, WRAP facilitators and people with a lived experience of recovery. In order to improve skills and stay informed regarding effective approaches to WRAP Facilitation, continued learning is imperative. It is a best practice for WRAP Facilitators to attend a refresher course at least once every two years to stay up to date on developments. This course is recommended for WRAP Facilitators to enhance their knowledge and skills with WRAP and to receive updates on implementing WRAP as an evidence-based practice (EBP).

Course Description: The WRAP Refresher Course is an online course facilitated by Copeland Center Advanced Level Facilitator John Woodruff and other Advanced Level WRAP Facilitators. It is intended to sharpen and expand participants' facilitation skills to further engage groups in the Wellness Recovery Action Planning. WRAP Facilitators will participate in 7 online seminars and complete assignments in between.

Through attendance in this course WRAP Facilitators will:

1)    Recognize expanded options on how to give effective group introductions.

2)    Identify additional knowledge areas.

3)    Apply at least one new skill to sharpen and expand group facilitation skills.

4)    Develop new and creative approaches to facilitation to accommodate participant challenges and differing group needs.
