Peer Recovery Center of Excellence - Communities of Practice
The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence hosts monthly communities of practice, a type of affinity call, as spaces for peer recovery support specialists and those who supervise them to network, learn, share, practice, and grow together. The goal of these calls is to bring together a variety of diverse perspectives from across the country to share in mutual learning that is centered on topics relevant to the peer workforce.
Previous topics for Peer Recovery Support Specialists have included:
- Exploring Multiple Pathways to Recovery
- Supporting People Navigating Mental Health Challenges
- Supporting People in Building Recovery Capital
Previous topics for supervisors of Peer Recovery Support Specialists have included:
- Ethical Leadership in Peer Supervision
- Recruiting and Retaining the Peer Workforce
- Building Wellness in the Workplace
Peer Recovery Support Specialists and supervisors who attend and participate in these communities of practice will receive a certificate of attendance. Due to the varying ways in which peer recovery support specialist recertification works, it is the responsibility of individual peer recovery support specialists to ensure these communities of practice meet their state’s recertification requirements.
