Event description

Description

Intentional Peer Support offers a framework for thinking differently about relationships. Connecting with people in the context of peer support can lead to complex questions around what exactly our boundaries are (or could be), how we negotiate boundaries respectfully and with curiosity, what we do with our (or other people's) feelings of attachment (or wanting to run away!) and what differences there might be between peer support and friendship. In the context of the Expanding Post-Discharge Support Initiative, there's also the ever-present question of how to negotiate the end of the peer support relationship.

This one-day training is designed to be a highly interactive mutual-learning environment where we can go deeper with these kinds of questions. Completion of the 5-day Intentional Peer Support Core Training is a pre-requisite for attendance at this training. Numbers are capped at 24, and priority will be given to peer workers in the Expanding Post-Discharge Support Initiative. If there is sufficient interest, this training may be repeated later in 2018.

The facilitators will be Sue Nunn and Flick Grey (both IPS facilitators and supervisors of the peer workforce).

For questions or more information, or DIETARY REQUIREMENTS please contact Flick (Flick@intentionalpeersupport.org).
