Event description

Description

At the most basic level peers are people who have some mutuality and equality such as having shared experiences, background, or characteristics. What makes the peer support worker role different from other relationships is the intention to use the shared experience to develop strong relationships based on mutuality, empathy, and shared understanding that benefits both peers in the relationship.

"Peer Support Workers or Volunteers are people with lived experience of a condition who are trained and employed to work in support of others in recovery."

Objectives:

  • In this workshop, you will learn more about the principles underlying formalised peer support, mutuality, empowerment, strengths based approach and empathy.
  • You will practice developing personal boundaries and learn about organisational and legal frameworks such as confidentiality, duty of care, negotiating risk and developing effective and mutually beneficial peer support relationships.
