Session Details

Event Date: 
Sun, 02/12/2023 - 3:30pm

Thousands of people across the United States and around the world have trained as WRAP® Facilitators. These people are changing the mental health system to honor people’s recovery journeys. This course models the behavior of a facilitator in a WRAP class and stresses authenticity and unconditional high regard, as well as a strong set of values and ethics to guide your work.

This training is appropriate for anyone who would like to lead WRAP groups, work with others to develop their own WRAP and give presentations on mental health recovery related issues to groups or organizations.  Attendees are expected to have a solid working knowledge of WRAP and share their experiential knowledge of how WRAP can work.

The WRAP Facilitator training provides an experiential learning environment based on mutuality. Through learning to implement the evidence-based practices and methods, WRAP Facilitators create an empowering learning environment to support people to make sustained changes in their lives toward wellness.  Participants in this course will be expected to participate in interactive learning activities and demonstrate their own experience with WRAP.
