A gathering for peer supervisors of Certified Peer Specialists and Certified Parent Peer Specialists to learn and grow together.
About this Event:
In March of 2020, the Wisconsin Peer Specialist Employment Initiative launched a monthly Community of Practice gathering for Certified Peer Specialists and Certified Parent Peer Specialists.
In the first few gatherings a need was identified for another Community of Practice specifically for those providing supervision to CPS or CPPS.
This Community of Practice is for individuals who can say both of the following:
1. I have worked as a Certified Peer Specialist, Certified Parent Peer Specialist, or in a similar peer role and have my own lived experience.
2. I also supervise other Certified Peer Specialists or Certified Parent Peer Specialists in Wisconsin.
If the above is true for you, please join us as we seek to learn and grow together how to improve professional peer support services in Wisconsin!
This month we will be learning about and exploring the topic of moral injury and how that relates to peer work. Supervisors of peer support professionals can find themselves in complex situations when it comes to identifying and addressing moral injury in our work, resulting from working within structures with sometimes conflicting values systems.
For a little bit of context when it comes to the concept of moral injury, please see the following FAQs provided by The Shay Moral Injury Center:
