WRAP Facilitator Training
Monday, April 9 – Friday, April 13, 2012
Learn all you need to become an effective Mental Health Recovery Educator and WRAP Group facilitator. Gain a deeper understanding of the recovery process and learn to:
- Work with people to help them uncover their personal strengths and how they can be used to support their recovery and wellness.
- Effectively share the key concepts to recovery: hope, personal responsibility, education, self-advocacy, and support.
- Work with individuals and groups to develop a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP).
- Teach about wellness tools and strategies.
- Empower and motivate people to work toward recovery.
- Use interaction styles and strategies that enhance recovery.
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.
Fee for the 5-day WRAP Facilitator Training is $1,200. Course participants may also choose to attend the National Council Conference held April 15-17, 2012. Registration for the conference will require a separate fee.
The WRAP Facilitator Training is open to individuals who have completed the WRAP Seminar I and have developed and are using a Wellness Recovery Action Plan. This training equips participants with the skills necessary to become Mental Health Recovery educators and WRAP Group facilitators and be able to facilitate classes in their communities and organizations. The training is delivered in an experiential learning environment based on self-determination and mutual respect. Participants engage in interactive learning activities and demonstrate their own experience with WRAP.
