Today we went over to my friend CJ’s house to help him practice for his WRAP training. WRAP stands for Wellness Recovery Action Plan, and it is a great way to use your knowledge of yourself when you are well as an action plan that you can use when things are going badly.
I wore my “Hairy Potter” shirt. For those with screen readers, it isn’t like the name Harry, instead it says hairy like lots of hair. The shirt has a picture of a cat potting a plant on it. A good friend of mine gave it to me a few months before she passed. So I took a few selfies with the shirt on, of course!
We ate lunch and then got into the WRAP training. There was a section on support people, and what they should and should not do for you. Since Hestia was there as a support person (I don’t think she needs her own WRAP!), CJ directed those slides to her, and she just LOVED it! She really likes CJ. And she even let Dan pet her for a while on the couch, too!
I’m having a lot of fun doing this WRAP training, though it is a LOT of slides to go through! It doesn’t feel like it takes a long time, though, because CJ is a good interactive teacher who breaks up the powerpoint with questions, response time, and breaks.
Glad you got to have some quality tribe time and help with the WRAP!! 🙂
It was fun! Hestia only wanted to go play with the cats 🙂
Chili likes to play with Cats too. He wants them to chase him but they don’t then he tries to get them to run so he can chase them but they don’t. He can’t figure out why thy don’t play like dogs do. 😮
I love t-shirts, that Hairy Potter is a fun one. I’ve never heard of WRAP before. Is it a program CJ is developing or is it in use today?
It is in use nation wide! We’ve only had two sessions, but I like it already!
I need to learn more about it.
