February 8, 2024

You’re invited to ask an expert about another interesting topic related to employment! This free event is not a presentation, but rather an interactive question & answer webinar. And YOU provide the questions! Ask Me Anything About: Stigma & Stigma Resistance...the #1 Reason for Peer Worker Turnover w/ Dr. Anneliese de Wet Anneliese de Wet completed her PhD in Psychology at Stellenbosch University in South Africa in December 2020. Prior to coming to the United States, she developed an individual measure of recovery for a South African context by exploring the understanding of recovery, as well as the barriers and facilitators of recovery, for people using services, their careers and service providers. Previously, she explored the lived experience of recovery from first-episode psychosis in a South African sample and worked on a Canadian CIHR-funded international, multi-site study on community engagement in HIV vaccine research. Anneliese is particularly interested in peer support work. She recently completed a research project in which she tried to understand how mental health peer specialists withstand or shield themselves against experiences of prejudice and discrimination on the job.
