ABOUT THIS COURSE:
This course is an in-depth review of Triggers and Triggers Action Plan, the second section of the Wellness Recovery Action Plan as described in various resources developed by Mary Ellen Copeland. WRAP is a popular and effective, self-directed process for maintaining personal wellness, and for helping yourself feel better when you are not feeling well. Please note: This course is not the same as a WRAP facilitator training and does not qualify you to become a Certified WRAP Group Facilitator. If you plan to facilitate a WRAP group or develop a WRAP program, please go to http://www.copelandcenter.com for information. This course content is designed for people who may have mental health difficulties, physical problems, or other kinds of serious life issues, and for those people who support them in their lives. However, it is a simple, safe process that anyone can use to guide their daily activities and organize their responses in difficult times. It is important that you know about WRAP and Triggers and Triggers Action Plan because: 1. WRAP is being widely used in this country and around the world by people who want to regain, manage, and maintain their wellness over time. 2. Rigorous quantitative research has proved the efficacy of WRAP. These findings are supported by data from people who use WRAP as a guide to daily living. 3. You may be one of the supporters of a person who is developing and using a WRAP. 4. In your support role, you need to know about programs and practices that safely help people to get well and stay well, and that empower them to take responsibility for their own lives. 5. You may want to develop and use a WRAP for yourself to address issues in your own life. The WRAP and Mental Health Recovery Group Model, when offered in groups as described in Facilitator Training Manual Mental Health Recovery Including WRAP, is an Evidence Based Practice and is listed in the National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices.
