Peer Recovery Support Specialists: The Benefits and Drawbacks of Peer Certification

August 16, 2023: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

Registration info

In this community of practice, we’ll discuss what certification means to the peer workforce and movement. We’ll explore how certification has supported the growth of the peer workforce, led to greater legitimacy in the eyes of some, and allowed access to funding streams. We’ll also explore how certification has siloed the meaning of lived experience, prioritized some recovery pathways above others, and contributed to inequities in the workforce.

Facilitator: Keris Myrick
