HFU hosts webinar on role of peer specialists (CE credits)

Peer Specialists bring a unique and valuable perspective to social service work, but not everyone shares a common understanding of this specialized skill set. In this 90-minute workshop, attendees will review the purpose and values of Certified Peer Specialists; explore the impact they can have on program participants when their perspectives and skills are utilized effectively; discuss the intersection of recovery and professional boundaries; and explore creative ways to engage service recipients in the community.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to discuss supervision, professional development, and experiences with and as certified peer specialists.
