Event Details

Peer Counseling Training teaches persons with a mental illness the use of active listening and problem solving skills to help peers.  Peer counseling training is based on the concept that people  generally are capable of solving most of their own problems of daily living. The role of a peer counselor is not to solve problems. Instead , peer counselors learn a structured procedure to help the person generate solutions to their own problems. Peer to Peer Counseling generates a bond and trust.  The peer counselor creates a safe context for the free expression of  emotions, and helps the person move toward clarity and resolution.

  • Two-day training offering 15 CEH's. 9am-4pm each day  ** No Lunch provided **
