National Practice Guidelines for Peer Supporters: Gaining Support for Peer Support

The National Practice Guidelines have been frequently cited and widely adopted around the world, but few know the story of how they came about, why they are so relevant to so many in the peer support workforce, or how they can be applied as a continuous learning tool to increase the effectiveness of peer support. After attending this webinar, you will be able to: 

  • Identify the overlap between professional help (paid professionals) and mutual help (natural peer support)
  • Recognize the confusion that comes from the overlap of these paradigms and the desire for practice guidelines
  • Recall the key factors that led to the development of the National Association of Peer Specialist and the National Practice Guidelines
  • Describe the process that was followed for gaining widespread agreement and adoption of the National Practice Guidelines.
  • Discuss ways to apply the National Practice Guidelines for continuous learning and improvement

The Call for Proposals for the 12th Annual Peer Supporter Conference includes a space to describe how your work incorporates one or more of the National Practice Guidelines. In this session, we'll review some of the guidelines to give some ideas for how these guidelines are being put into practice.
