Question

As our world shifts with the COVID-19 global outbreak, The Copeland Center would like to address the big question that so many have been asking us:
“Can we co-facilitate WRAP® online?”

We have explored the many unique needs and challenges with “going online” and are providing the following guidance for our co-facilitator community:  

Since 2013 when the Copeland Center introduced PEERS as its first WRAP® Center of Excellence, PEERS has continued to be a leader within our grassroots community as a place where the evidence-based practices of WRAP® co-facilitation thrives. Through careful evaluation of the WRAP values in practice, involving both self-reflection and observation by the Copeland Center, PEERS has shown that its WRAP program serving Alameda County, California is a true model from which others can learn. We are pleased to extend PEERS award of WRAP® Center of Excellence through 2020.

During this time of COVID-19, we are encouraging our peer support community, including WRAP® Facilitators, to promote maintaining social connection while practicing physical distancing. The Copeland Center will be expanding our current offerings of online resources to support our community with digital/remote options. We invite you as WRAP® Facilitators to reach out using remote access tools to continue supporting people who have participated in your in-person WRAP® groups.

In WRAP groups, a participant will likely hear facilitators use the phrase “choices and options” in response to many kinds of questions. In general, when we ask questions we want answers, meaning this response can be understandably frustrating. So why do we do it? Rest assured, it is not to frustrate, rather it is to empower each participant, knowing that they are the expert on themselves, to make their own choices and never limit their options.

Annual Report
The Copeland Center is rooted in core values and ethics that facilitate wellness, most notably through the facilitation of the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP)®. All of our facilitation practices have the singular goal to support individuals to live their lives to the fullest, connect with their community and explore their wellness with peers.
Wellness Activities for Kids
Inspired by a Member’s Webinar by Lori Young and Gina Calhoun, Copeland Center Members contributed creative and fun activities to use with kids to explore HOPE, PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, EDUCATION, SELF-DETERMINATION and ADVOCACY.

Maybe you were recently trained as a WRAP Facilitator and loved the experience. Maybe you have a lot of experience as a WRAP Facilitator. Maybe you see an opportunity in your organization for a pair of Advanced Level WRAP Facilitators. Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator Training is a 5-day in-person training that certifies participants to train WRAP Facilitators. All participants must be trained WRAP Facilitators. There is an application process to be accepted into the training and the Copeland Center often receives many more applications than it has available spaces. Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator Training is offered 2-3 times a year in the US and 1-2 times a year outside of the US.

I had a hell of a moment last night I went to a recovery meeting last night and the topic was HOPE. As I am coming up on a milestone in my own personal recovery, this is the time of year that I reflect on my journey and the lessons that I have learned through the struggles and challenges that I have faced and overcame over the years. Although 12 Step is the foundation of my recovery, I have to say that the Values and Ethics of WRAP along with the Five Key Recovery Concepts have taken my recovery to another level that is much deeper than it was prior to WRAP.

As a young person myself, WRAP for me is a self-management system that equips me for lifelong wellness. However, more than just a personal self-managing guide, the evidenced-based practice of WRAP is about the GROUP PROCESS and environment that is created within the group. Youth being able to be with other youth in a way that creates understanding, mutual learning and self-identified tools for wellness.
