Advanced Peer Support Training For Public Safety
As a peer supporter, it is common for you to think, “I don’t know how to help, manage, or assess this situation.” This one-day training is designed to eliminate the concern of providing support when the issue is uncomfortable. We will critically examine scenarios in which peer support members might find themselves. A brief lecture will be given to introduce the topic and the remainder of the class will be devoted to tabletop and class discussions. Make sure you are prepared to assess, discuss, share your experiences, and learn from others.
Topics will include:
– Sex/Porn addiction
– Divorce and custody situations
– Workers Compensation
– Eating disorders
– Chronic suicidal ideation
– Chronic illness and end of life
– Domestic violence
