This 5 day, 30-hour evidence informed highly interactive training is available on Zoom or in-person. Designed as a process of personal transformation to understand peer assisted recovery supports. It will test personal and recovery community norms we have come to understand in the last 20 years of assisted recovery supports and services. This is the latest and most modern and current curriculum around peer-assisted supports and recovery that will transform how we approach our peers, and more importantly, how we truly meet them where they are at and empower them in finding and maintaining recovery.
This course is designed for individuals who are working as peers in offering recovery support services. A strong emphasis will be placed on understanding the similarities and difference between values, norms, principles, morals and ethics as well as on learning how to go about making an ethical decision. Other areas to be explored will include understanding the ethical standards for delivery of peer recovery services in your jurisdiction as well as the possibility of differing ethical standards give the location of service delivery (Federally Qualified Health Centers, jails/prisons, hospitals/emergency settings, recovery community organizations, etc.). The training will rely on presentations, exercises and experiential learning techniques. The curriculum development was funded in part by Kennebunk Savings Bank.
Suicide Prevention for peer assisted recovery focuses on prevention and intervention training using key strategies from evidenced based national suicide prevention and intervention strategies. This class focuses on stigma and recovery community strategies that promote community wide responses to suicide prevention. This program is open to all peer recovery coaches and recovery support workers.
