Intentional Peer Support (IPS)
Intentional Peer Support is an innovative practice that focuses on how to build and grow relationships based on mutuality and shared experience.
In this highly interactive 5‐day training, participants learn the principles of IPS, examine assumptions about who they are, and explore ways to create relationships in which power is negotiated, co‐learning is possible, and support goes beyond traditional notions of “service.” This training is designed for individuals with lived experience of recovery from mental health challenges; we also welcome people with lived experience of recovery from substance use challenges and/or co‐occurring challenges to apply. It is an Endorsement training for Via Hope Certified Peer Specialists, but certification is not a requirement for participation.
37.5 CEUs are awarded upon completion.
