In Decmber 2017, we did something a bit different on day two at Valued Lives in Redruth, Cornwall. Six trainees used cardboard, scissors and felt-tip pens to create a picture representing the 5 Recovery Concepts. The other 6 trainees were given the task of using the words of Mary Ellen Copeland in creating a great way to explain the WRAP concept of Self-Advocacy. They came back to the training room to perform a play they had written and rehearsed (in only about 35minutes in the break-out room). Both the picture and play were great although it was decided not to film the play as WRAP trainees often prefer not to identifiable on-line.
We are WRAP trainers who have recovered from crises and continue to stay well being able to provide effective peer support for others on such a journey.
We can travel to your venue to provide a short introduction for groups of up to about 30 people, or one day or two day WRAP courses - typically for 12 participants.
Learning Wellness Recovery Action Planning provides essential skills of planning to stay well and preparing for any future crises. It can be seen as an inoculation against many potential illnesses through the development of healthier lifestyle.
Who is WRAP for?
Our Wellness Recovery Action Plan / Planning courses are for anyone interested in planning for wellness or recovery.
Our courses are suitable for those who consider themselves 'in-recovery', 'fully recovered' or helping others to recover.
We train anywhere in England and Wales.
We can put you in touch with trainers in Scotland, NI and Ireland
By using WRAP individuals gain/regain the belief that they are the most important factor determining their wellness, ensuring more effective recovery from current and future crises.
Below is one of our facilitators with WRAP course participants.
WRAP can boost understanding for healthy people, whilst helping to relate with friends, relatives and work colleagues who may be suffering.
Participants work together on the workshops and often continue to find out more about wellness and recovery together after the course.
Common benefits of WRAP for individuals such as increased happiness are difficult to measure, yet we do know participants who had been out of work have gained the confidence to become fully active again.
The one and two day courses are for people with; diagnosed health problems, excess stress but staying relatively well and those such as managers who may or may not be feeling much stress themselves but need a better understanding.
An introduction to the key concepts of Wellness Recovery & WRAP can be delivered as a talk, with some audience participation, in as little as 50 minutes. The maximum attending one of our WRAP talks has been 90. This has been in 2016 and 2017 for 'Think Ahead'.
We find groups of 12 work well together on the one day course. For people in recovery from severe psychological injuries, the two day version with two facilitators can be ideal.
Since 2008 we have been facilitating WRAP training for mixed groups of carers and people who are in-recovery.
The best known parts of WRAP are the seven steps. There is a lot more to WRAP than these 7 steps.
