This session is designed to provide a review of some very basic tools for evaluation that anyone with access to a spreadsheet can use—including, logic models (the beating heart of any good program and its evaluation); easy guides to using spreadsheets for data; how to do surveys at low-, medium-, and high-tech levels; how to pose evaluation questions that can be answered; and what’s actually “smart” about SMART measures and what is not “smart” about them.


In this plenary session we’ll explore the importance of implementing power structures beyond hierarchical models. We’ll look at consensus-based decision-making processes, horizontal organizational structures, and ways in which to elevate the voices of staff most impacted by decision that are being made. We’ll also explore accountability structures for those in positions of power within organizations.

Please note that this event is a part of a series that is currently full and no longer accepting registrations. We will be running the series again, so keep an eye out for the application later this fall!


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


In this community of practice, we’ll explore the supports that may be needed when PRSS experience the death of a colleague or person they’re providing services to. We’ll discuss how to provide effective support without overstepping professional boundaries. We’ll also explore how to create space for PRSS staff to navigate their experiences around grief without monitoring their emotional wellbeing.

Facilitator: Lisa Marie Auter


Following the listening session, How do we support and grow the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Recovery Community?, the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence, in partnership with Communities for Recovery, is hosting monthly virtual networking space to continue the conversation. Our hope is to gather community stakeholders - members of the DHH community in or seeking recovery, DHH peer recovery support workers, professionals serving the DHH recovery community, and leaders interested in growing the infrastructure and support for the DHH peer recovery specialist workforce - to discuss what is working and identifying potential solutions to the barriers the DHH peer workforce is facing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and nurture networking within the DHH recovery community
  • Explore strengths and identify barriers for DHH peer recovery professionals
  • Discover strategies to develop the DHH peer recovery workforce

This workshop will build upon the education provided by the previous 2 workshops and focus on the practical application of concepts into daily practice as a peer support provider. This will include modeling an “ideal” version of interacting with a TGNCNB client, sharing things that could go right and things that could go wrong, and ways to make spaces more inclusive and accessible for TGNCNB individuals. This workshop will also provide an overview of how to gracefully navigate mistakes and misunderstandings when working with TGNCNB individuals and provide space for participants to practice these conversations and skills in a supportive environment. The goal of this workshop is for participants to leave feeling more comfortable and confident in working with TGNCNB individuals, and for them to have tangible skill sets in terms of navigating mistakes, asking respectful questions, and clarifying misunderstandings.


This session is designed to give an overview of the NOMs and SAMHSA evaluation in general, why it’s important to collect the data, why the NOMs indicators are good measures of program impact (though they are not clinical measures), how they are useful for staff (including both clinical and non-clinical staff, peers and non-peers alike), and finally, some “tricks of the trade” to maximize doing NOMs. “Tricks of the trade” include things like adding your own, homegrown questions, consumer satisfaction, or other measures to the NOMs for local use (i.e. taking advantage of the fact that if you have to do these surveys for SAMHSA, you can get more info from the clients that can help in programming, service provision, and organizational development).
