Trauma Sensitive Peer Support: Continuing Our Journey

As Certified Peer Professionals, we continue our healing and recovery journey every day and this workshop allows for more growth and understanding of trauma, how it applies to us as humans, how we can apply it to our professional life, and why any of that is important.

During this workshop participants will:

  • Practice sharing a personal story in a way that is sensitive to the person receiving the story
  • Practice receiving a person's story that may be difficult to hear in a kind and compassionate manner 
  • understand the importance of body language while having difficult conversations
  • learn how to control body responses and verbal responses that may be harmful 
  • learn how to receive a person's story so it does not become part of vicarious trauma for the peer professional
Time: 3-day Training or 18-hours

Number of People: 30
