Advanced Peer Support Training For Public Safety
Peer supporters often feel unsure of how to assist, manage, or assess a situation. This one-day training is designed to reduce the concern of providing support when the issue is uncomfortable. We will examine scenarios in which peer support members might find themselves. Following a brief introduction to the topic, the majority of the class will be devoted to tabletop and class discussions. You should be 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
