ABOUT THIS COURSE:
Anyone involved in mental health recovery can learn about her/himself. However, those individuals who are involved in their recovery through this course will learn how to evaluate each component of the recovery process, as well reflect on how each element has affected them personally. Based on content from The National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery (NCMHR), this course summarizes the values and ethics of the Mental Health Recovery Education program. As described in the works of Mary Ellen Copeland, Ph.D., in conjunction with the trainings of The Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery, this course provides fundamental guidelines for mental health professionalsincluding health care administrators and providers, counselors, case managers, therapists, or social workersto ensure that each of their clients who reaches out for help receives the most beneficial treatment to facilitate her/his recovery and wellness. Dr. Copeland and other leaders in the mental health recovery movement feel that these values and ethics lay the foundation for recovery efforts made by any level of mental health professional, those who are working on their own recovery and wellness or supporting someone who is, WRAP facilitators, as well as people involved in WRAP programs, workshops, or groups. Not only will this training teach you what those basic values and ethics are, but it also will highlight the benefits and importance of living by them, as well as the consequences of not. To reinforce and enhance your learning, this course includes various interactive activities and exercises, as well as audio vignettes by the author. This course is not the same as a WRAP Facilitator Training and does not qualify you to be a Certified Copeland Center WRAP Facilitator. If you plan to lead a WRAP course or develop a WRAP program, please see more about the Copeland Center in this courses Reference section to learn more information.
