Monthly Meeting: “Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP)”
Dr. Joel Monroe will speak about WRAP – the Wellness Recovery Action Plan formulated by Mary Ellen Copeland. WRAP is a self-designed prevention and wellness process that anyone can use to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be. It was developed in 1997 by a group of people who were searching for ways to overcome their own mental health issues and move on to fulfilling their life dreams and goals. It is now used extensively by people in all kinds of circumstances, and by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health and life issues.
Joel M. Monroe, Psy.D., received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Heidelberg University and earned his doctorate in clinical psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology in Washington, D.C.
He completed his residency at Broughton Hospital in Morganton, N.C., and a postdoctoral fellowship in psychotic disorders at the Medical College of Georgia.
In his adult psychological practice, Dr. Monroe offers individual and group psychotherapy, cognitive remediation and social skills training, and psychological and neurocognitive assessment.
His clinical interests include schizophrenia and psychotic spectrum disorders, chronic mood disorders, psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery, personality disorders, neuropsychiatric conditions and adult general mental health.
He is a member of the American Psychological Association, the International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis and the Society for Personality Assessment.
