The Power of WRAP
The 2015 WRAP Around the World Conference is only days away! This year’s keynote will be addressing what each us can do in our day to day relationships through peer support, receiving support from others and supporting others, that will help enhance the power and effectiveness of WRAP. In anticipation of Monday’s conference kickoff, I wanted to share the following keynote address from a recent conference that speaks to the Power of WRAP.
Keynote Address from the 2013 WRAP
Around the World Conference Oakland, California
When I talked with you at the conference back in August of 2011, I spoke a lot about the pendulum. At one end of the pendulum the recovery movement is moving forward; more and more people are using WRAP and the Key Concepts and following the Values and Ethics – and recovery is becoming possible and probable for more and more people.
Do You Use Social Media?
With all the social media outlets and tech devices available today, peer support has evolved far beyond 1-on-1 personal interactions. I recently posed the following question on our Mary Ellen Copeland – Mental Health Recovery & WRAP Facebook account:
Do you use electronic technology or social media for support? Things like Facebook, Skype and Ichat. Any electronic media at all? If you use it, how is it working for you? How does it compare to face-to-face interactions?
