Introduction to Healing-Centered Peer Support: An Approach for Peers Working with Trauma is a three-day training, which provides participants with a foundation for understanding what trauma is, how trauma impacts people and communities, what healing looks like, and how peers can use these concepts and their own lived experience to best support people who are navigating trauma and/or exploring healing. Throughout the training, participants will have opportunities to explore and define their own story of trauma and healing through various activities and structured reflection.
This training is appropriate for anyone working or volunteering (or interested in working or volunteering) as a peer supporter. As long as they have shared lived experience with the people they will support, eligible participants can work in a variety of fields: adult and children’s mental health, substance use, primary medical care, veteran’s support, family support (including parental mental health), etc.
19 CEUs are awarded upon completion.
Next training: April 24-26, 2019 in Seguin, TX. Application available. Deadline to apply: April 1st by 5pm.
