Continuing education and training for the peer support workforce
The Recovery to Practice training consists of the following parts:
- Participant Workbook
- In-Person Training Sessions
- Post-Training Assessment of Skills and Knowledge
Eight content areas are covered in the workbook, in-person training, and assessment:
- Module 1: The Transforming Power of Recovery
- Module 2: The Complex Simplicity of Wellness
- Module 3: The Effects of Trauma on Recovery
- Module 4: Multicultural Awareness and Recovery
- Module 5: From Dual Diagnosis to Recovery of the Whole Person
- Module 6: Peer Support Values and Guidelines
- Module 7: Strengthening Workplace Relationships
- Module 8: Supportive Recovery Relationships
The topics were identified by working peer support providers across the country during the analysis phase as areas where additional training was needed. Peer input and content expert reviews were included in all phases of the design, development, and delivery of the training.
Completion of the self-paced workbook is a pre-requisite to attending the in-person training so that all participants who take the training start from a common base of knowledge about the core topics.
The in-person training uses a Collaborative Learning approach, in which the participants are the “content experts” and the facilitators are guides to set up experiences that allow the participants to share their working knowledge of each area that is being explored.
The in-person training is adapted from the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP). To learn more about this transforming practice, visit: http://avpusa.org/
Post Training Assessment
The post-training assessment is an open-book online assessment that is available only to participants who complete the in-person training or to authorized organizations that have completed the requirements to offer the in-person training.
Training for facilitators of the Recovery to Practice in-person training will be offered to those who complete the training as participants. Watch the iNAPS news for future opportunities to become a recognized facilitator of this training!
