ABOUT THIS FREE WEBINAR SERIES

_______________________________________

Through the generous support of OptumHealth, this free webinar series is being offered by the International Association of Peer Supporters (iNAPS) to provide continuing education toward putting recovery principles into practice.

The series launched on April 23, 2013 with a webinar on vital recovery knowledge for working peer supporters. “This webinar will help ensure we are on the ‘same page’ regarding basic recovery principles and will be useful for subsequent webinars in the series,” according to Steve Harrington, executive director of INAPS.

The webinar series is a result of the Recovery to Practice Project for peer supporters and will draw on a comprehensive continuing education curriculum developed as part of that project.

“The goal of the project is to improve peer support,” Harrington said. “As part of the project, we obtained input from peer supporters across the country to learn what they felt were recovery knowledge gaps and for the last two years, have developed a curriculum to address those gaps.”

The webinar series will consist of eight, one-hour sessions delivered by a variety of experts involved in the Recovery to Practice project. The first webinar will be facilitated by Harrington. Additional webinars are planned to cover trauma-informed peer support, wellness, multi-cultural awareness, peer support roles and values, co-occurring disorders and recovery relationships.

“We hope some states will grant continuing education credits for participation,” Harrington said. “It will be the responsibility of participants to request such credits from state officials who certify peer supporters.”

Although the webinar series is designed for working peer supporters, it is open to anyone interested.

A free certificate of attendance is provided after viewing the webinar and completing a brief self-check quiz. To ask questions or receive information on upcoming webinars, send an email to: webinars@naops.org and provide your name, address and e-mail address.
