Family WRAP™

When we think of family, we may think of the traditional family – Mom, Dad and children who live, work and play together, however, family is a much broader concept. In WRAP classes, family is a group of people who want to be together in a relationship that supports growth, happiness and wellness.

Families may have had difficult times working together. These patterns may have been established for a long time. Sometimes they are handed down, just like antiques, from generation to generation. Although old habits are often hard to break, it can be done as we “unlearn” them.

Family WRAP Is Designed to:

• Identify what families need for everyday wellness
• Develop skills and tools from a personal WRAP as well as family WRAP
• Help each member contribute to plans that the family will use to improve day to day interactions, meet daily challenges and promote mutual cooperation

There is a $25 materials fee, per person,  for the course. Bursaries may be available to offset this fee for people with limited incomes.
