Intentional Peer Support Core training (Virtual)
Schedule: 10/10 – 10/12 (Tuesday through Thursday), 10/17 (Tuesday), and 10/18 (Wednesday), 9:00am-4:30pm each day. Participants must attend all days. We will take an hour lunch and two short breaks each day.
Based on Shery Mead’s book, Intentional Peer Support: An Alternative Approach, our Core Training is an in-person 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.
This training is generously sponsored by Vermont’s Peer Workforce Development Initiative – there is only a $100 fee per participant for IPS Core Materials.
