ABOUT THIS FREE WEBINAR SERIES

_______________________________________

Through the generous support of Optum, this free webinar series is offered by the International Association of Peer Supporters (iNAPS) to provide continuing education toward putting recovery principles into practice.

The series launched on April 23, 2013 with a webinar on vital recovery knowledge for working peer supporters. “This webinar helped to ensure we are on the ‘same page’ regarding basic recovery principles and was useful in the development of subsequent webinars in the series,” according to Steve Harrington, executive director of INAPS.

The original ten webinars in the series were a result of the Recovery to Practice Project for peer supporters and drew on a comprehensive continuing education curriculum developed as part of that project.

“The goal of this part of the project was to improve peer support,” Harrington said. “As part of the project, we obtained input from peer supporters across the country to learn what they felt were recovery knowledge gaps and for the last two years, have developed a curriculum to address those gaps.”

The original webinar series consisted of ten, one-hour sessions delivered by a variety of experts involved in the Recovery to Practice project. The first webinar was facilitated by Harrington. Additional webinars covered trauma-informed peer support, wellness, multi-cultural awareness, peer support roles and values, co-occurring disorders and recovery relationships.

So far, the state certification authorities have recognized the expertise and the use of a quiz to establish attendance for continuing education credits for participation. It remains the responsibility of participants to turn in completed certificates and to follow the official process in their state to request credits from state officials who certify peer supporters.

Although the webinar series is designed for working peer supporters, it is open to anyone interested.

A free certificate of attendance is provided to iNAPS Members after viewing the webinar and completing a brief self-check quiz. The process is to send an email to [email protected] to request the link for the quiz to a specific webinar. Once membership is verified, the link is sent. Once the quiz is complete, a copy of the quiz and a certificate of attendance are sent to the participant.

To ask questions or receive information on upcoming webinars, send an email to: [email protected] and provide your name, address and e-mail address.
