In this webinar, Sherri Rushman, Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator, will guide attendees through the process of identifying support related Wellness Tools and then using those tools to build a powerful WRAP. "Everyone needs friends we can talk to, pals to share activities with, and people we can depend on. This training is based on Mary Ellen Copeland's "The Loneliness Workbook" and we will explore: definitions of loneliness, images of loneliness, what loneliness means to you, why people may avoid you, how to use wellness tools to relieve loneliness, how to enjoy time alone, looking at your strengths, and how to have mutual relationships."

WRAP Facilitator, Dawn Heffernan, explored how WRAP has helped her create the plan that works for her around food. As Dawn says: "I struggled with issues around food, why did I eat ALL the cookies or chocolate, why did I have so little self-control around certain foods. I would like to share my journey with you and together we may shine some light on this difficult subject. I make no promises but developing your own WRAP around food is possible and achieving your goal is not as impossible as you might think."

"WRAP for Everyday Lives", a webinar based on the Wellness Recovery Action Plan, introduces the infinitely do-able structure of WRAP for adults with distinct learning needs. Through the experience and expertise of several people with various intellectual abilities, we have developed a language for describing the parts of WRAP that accepts each person, as they are, unique, special individuals. We recognize that based on self-determination, all people can write a WRAP to move toward a happier, healthier life. The webinar was presented by Dina McFalls and Gina Calhoun.
