Webinars


Vocational Recovery and Peer Support

December 9, 2014 3:00 – 3:30 ET

Peer support has proven to be an essential part of recovery in mental health. Many people in recovery assert that work is an integral part of their recovery, and in recent years, there has been an increased focus on supporting “Vocational Recovery” itself. This workshop will explore vocational recovery as an aspect of overall recovery, and the role of peer specialists in supporting people to have satisfying, meaningful, vocational lives.

 


“I got the job… now what?” The Role of Peer Specialists in Supporting Job Retention

December 16, 2014 3:00 – 3:30 ET

Most employment and vocational service systems focus on getting people employed, i.e., getting into jobs, with minimal follow-up. Personal experience tells us that getting the job is only half the battle. This webinar will address the ways in which peer specialists, who play an important role in the recovery workforce, can support people as they KEEP employment and school roles and environments. From the developers of Vocational Peer Support, this webinar will explore ways in which peer supporters can work with people on the skills, supports, and accommodations they may need to be successful and satisfied where they work or learn.
