The Fundamentals of Creating a Peer Support Team

POST-accredited virtual training

Creating a peer support team can be an overwhelming and confusing process. Education and training on successfully doing so is extremely limited. Legislation and statutory requirements are often changing. This is why we’ve created The Fundamentals of Creating a Peer Support Team.

This 6-week virtual training series was born out of a collaborative effort among peer support teams looking to fill the missing gaps in available training and education, and simplify the process of creating much-needed peer support teams.

By the end of this training, you will walk away with a strong knowledge base of the foundation and elements required to create an effective peer support team, and how to use them. This includes:

  • How to determine the basic elements of what you do – and don’t – need to make a team
  • How to gain administration buy-in, including funding support
  • How to easily write an approved policy with our included outline
  • Knowing the difference between confidentiality & privilege – and who gets what
  • How to use specific tools, such as defusing, debriefing, one-on-one, etc.
  • How to meet the requirement for clinical support, specifically including the August 2020 legislation changes

This all-inclusive training series consists of six live trainings, each consisting of 30 minutes of training followed by 30 minutes of Q & A, where you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your specific department’s situation and needs and network with those from other departments. The cost is $197. The schedule will be as follows:

March 15: 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM (extra 30 minutes to allow for introductions)
