Course – Peer Support Learning for the 21st Century (PSL).
The “Peer Support Learning for the 21st Century” is an 80-hour training course for individuals who have a lived personal and/or family member recovery experience from mental illness, addiction, and/or trauma. The competency-based PSL course is highly engaging, interactive, skill-centered and, in many ways, provides for a life changing experience. This course will prepare participants to master peer support competencies. During the skill-based class sessions, students will interact with fellow classmates as they practice peer support with fellow participants. They will receive ongoing and just-in-time coaching feedback on their performance of newly learned peer support skills. The overall learning experience utilizes adult learning principles to optimize retention and skill transfer to the workplace.

Course – Recovery Practices for Organizations.
The 4-hour “Recovery and Resilience Training for Organizations” Workshop is highly fun, interactive, and skill based. The dynamic team and reflective exercises will cause employees to examine how they presently view recovery and resilience while inspiring them to step up their practices. One key objective is to help the whole organization get on board with recovery and resilience services. Participants will gain hands-on experience on how to apply recovery and resilient skills with the people they serve as well as their co-workers. Another key objective is to provide staff with an understanding of the important role peer support plays in recovery services and outcomes.  Staff will also gain concrete tools and strategies to sustain recovery and resilient culture and services.

Course – Recovery Practices for Leaders – Peer Supervision.
This 2-day fun, dynamic, and experiential course provides leaders with the principles and practices for creating and sustaining a recovery and resilient-oriented service environment. Participants will gain hands-on experience on how to use several recovery and resilient leadership tools and strategies for leading and coaching peer support specialists as well every other professional staff member on their entire team. The workshop also provides leaders with an opportunity for a reflective personal and confidential staff inventory of their leadership style.

Course – Resilient Culture Playbook Workshop.
This 1-day fun, dynamic, and highly skill-based Resilient Culture Playbook Workshop provides supervisors and team leaders with an innovative, just-in-time supervision tool and process to help them build and sustain a recovery-focused and resilient culture.
