The DBT program I go through is through the local mental health clinic, ran by the hospitals behavioral health. There is Linehan's model and Cathy Moonshine who uses Linehan's model but explains them a bit more.

I think both WRAP and DBT are valuable. WRAP gives a person a way to structure what they already know about their illness in a way so that it is helpful to them. DBT teaches new information and skills. Unfortunately, the full DBT program that SWEETTLC described, is quite expensive. A friend who took the course several years ago paid $10,000 for 1 year. There are studies which provide DBT training for no cost, but my friend didn't qualify for any. It's a shame that DBT training is not available at no cost for those who can benefit from it. Deb

I have learened a lot from both WRAP and DBT. I think they both have been very helpful in finally getting me to the point where I am actually living a life instead of going through the motions of life.

I have learned more from the DBT (dialetical behavioral therapy) then I did from the WRAP. I think that WRAP is done by just you and you are suppose to learn from yourself. Where as DBT you learn different skills to assist you in what to do when... you talk as a group and learn as a group. Also there is one to one therapy to discuss how the skills work with you or not.

I've done a WRAP on a couple of occasions, but I, too, struggle with using it on a daily basis. I even included it with my daily planner, but still found myself ignoring it, instead of reading through it daily. Part of the problem is that I've got lots of ideas, and so it has become quite wordy.

I read about a woman who made a large bulletin board on a wall to keep her goals and such in plain view. I'm doing the same, and am in the process of writing out the various parts of my WRAP and putting them up on the wall. So far, I'm having fun with it, but I just started.

WRAP entails several written out parts that help you to stay on the right track. For instance some of it entails writing out the following in dealing with your mental illness
Triggers
Warning Signs
Crisis Plan (what others can do for you when you cant do it for yourself anymore such as if you need to go to the hospital), It was developed by Mary Ellen Copeland and if you type in WRAP into a search engine you will come upon her website and it shows you how and what it entails. If any questions please email me and I can email you the information.

I did one for myself many years ago. I didnt use it because it was in a folder and not under my feet to access. I guess I had my ducks in a row enough to know who I needed to call and when. There is a web site that explains it. But it is basically putting your goals on paper and working to acheive them.

This is the first I've heard of it...but did a quick search and it looks interesting.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Never herd of it. Some info?

Wellness Recovery Action Plan is what WRAP stands for. Does anybody else use this as part of their recovery process? I have a "plan", but dont use it like a should all the time. I just wanted to know if anyone else uses it and what their struggles or sucesses are with it. thanks!
