WRAP - Wellness Recovery Action Planning

Caroline Bergin – McLoughlin is a PhD Candidate and is currently undertaking a piece of research into Fibromyalgia at the Centre for Psychological Health at Trinity College Dublin. She is seeking adults with Fibromyalgia to participate in a study on ‘The Promotion of Self-Management in Fibromyalgia’. The study will examine the impact of a Wellness based intervention on self-management of the condition.

Taking part in the study involves participating in a weekly WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning) training programme facilitated by a Copeland Centre Accredited facilitator. Each session will last for 1 ½ hours. The programme will run for 7 weeks in a number of locations in Dublin and the Midlands with the view to extending it to additional locations based on level of interest. Participants will be required to complete a small number of short questionnaires both before and after the training.

All information collected is anonymous and confidentiality is assured.
