Reentry Peer Specialist Certification Training (Austin) – POSTPONED
May 11, 2020 @ 9:00 am - May 16, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
THIS TRAINING HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Via Hope is providing a new eight-day (6 days in person and 2 days via an eLearning Platform) peer training and certification specifically for formerly incarcerated individuals. This training is designed to directly address the significant barriers to becoming a whole person; this includes employment and other reentry barriers that many people face after release from incarceration. The emphasis on the trauma individuals experience before, during, and after incarceration is a significant distinction from other training models. There is also an emphasis on the Freedom vs. Release perspective. The Reentry Peer Specialist credential will also offer formerly incarcerated individuals an opportunity to further their own recovery while providing support and hope to other people who may be trying to find their own way through reentry and recovery.
