Intentional Peer Support Core (In-Person – Burlington, VT)

June 3 @ 9:00 am - June 7 @ 4:30 pm


Intentional Peer Support is a way of thinking about and inviting transformative relationships. Practitioners learn to use relationships to see things from new angles, develop greater awareness of personal and relational patterns, and support and challenge each other in trying new things.

Based on Shery Mead’s book, Intentional Peer Support: An Alternative Approach, our in-person Core Training is a 5-day introduction to this innovative framework and is designed to have you practicing right away. In a highly interactive environment, participants learn the tasks and 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.” IPS is all about opening up new ways of seeing, thinking, and doing, and here we examine how to make this possible.

Monday, June 3rd through Friday, June 7th, 9:00am-4:30pm. Participants must attend all days. We will take an hour lunch and two short breaks each day.
