The Recovery to Practice training for working peer specialists is based on the input and support of hundreds of peer specialists and other practitioners throughout the country. Peers provided their opinions and participated in information gathering sessions [materials, focus groups, etc.] with Steve Harrington in the first year of the Recovery to Practice Project (2009 / 2010).
Following the information gathering sessions, iNAPS Director Steve Harrington wrote a situational analysis that was reviewed by expert consultants from across the country who made recommendations for curriculum topics and delivery strategies.

Following the situational analysis, additional peer input was gathered and incorporated in the design, development, and delivery of the training as described in the Deliverables section of this site.
