WRAP is a powerful tool for recovery. Through WRAP, many people have found a way to actively engage in their own recoveries. And people have found WRAP useful for many aspects of their lives, in many different settings. In this workshop we’ll explore how WRAP can be used in forensic peer support.  This workshop will provide education about how WRAP can help people with disturbing and uncomfortable feelings while behind prison walls. Additionally, there will be discussion of the challenges within the Philadelphia county prison, and a candid conversation of difficulties peer specialists sometimes face when providing peer support in forensic settings.
