Description

Learn GPS Group Peer Support in 2 Days!

GPS Group Peer Support is an integrated and intersectional community-based approach that supports individuals who would benefit from support because of experiences or challenges they are facing. It is designed to support parents, people in recovery, currently or formerly incarcerated people, people working in the foster care system, and those facing systemic oppression as well as those bringing resources to communities of faith. If you are running groups or want to run groups for folks who are new parents, people struggling with emotional complications like depression and anxiety, fathers, gender non-conforming and non-binary people, marginalized people, people in recovery, those suffering from infant/child loss, low income circumstances, incarcerated people, and people targeted by racism, Islamaphobia, heterosexism and other oppressions this is for YOU!


Please ask if this model would be good for the people and populations whom you serve.


LEARN THIS INNOVATIVE MODEL

GPS Group Peer Support is an evidence-informed group model that will give you the map to support your community whatever challenges they are facing. GPS is an empowering group experience that provides a safe place for people to hear from others on the path, gain perspective and strength and chart a course through challenging times.


YOU WILL:

  • Learn how to provide an evidence-informed model that incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based stress reduction and psychosocial education in a warm and accessible group model

  • Learn group leadership skills to provide trauma-informed, empowering group environments through both didactic and experiential learning modalities

  • Explore cultural messages and myths that can undermine confidence, competence and mental health

  • Learn how to provide a population and culturally sensitive, group model for diverse communities

  • Include the values and soul of your community into the heart of GPS

  • Merge GPS with already-existing educational curricula and learning objectives to enhance deeper engagement
