CONTINUING EDUCATION WORKSHOP

FOR PEER SUPPORT COUNSELORS

 

  • TOPIC: 

Intro to WRAP for Peer Counselors (2-days) 

WRAP® workshops are designed to be highly interactive. Facilitators encourage participation at whatever level feels comfortable. WRAP® is a living document that is unique to everyone. WRAP® facilitators skillfully share this simple and profound educational model so that participants can incorporate WRAP® into their lives. Through engagement in a Intro to WRAP® workshop, participants will have a good understanding of the Key Concepts of Wellness and Recovery, and explore ways to integrate the philosophy into daily life. Participants of Intro to WRAP® workshops will engage in a facilitated self-exploration process. They will unearth strengths and create personal powerful action plans to deal with life’s challenges. Through attending this experiential workshop, as well as time spent developing a personal WRAP®, participants can fulfill the prerequisites needed to attend a WRAP Facilitator training.
