CONTINUING EDUCATION WORKSHOP for PEER SUPPORT SPECIALISTS
Co-occurring Disorders Training for Peer Counselors is interactive and provides useful tools for Peer Counselors working with people who experience co-occurring disorders – the coexistence of both a mental health and a substance use disorder. It will further define co-occurring disorders, introduce study results, the Stages of Change, relapse prevention, and cover the SAMHSA perspective. In a classroom setting, peer counselors will learn how to positively work with people who experience co-occurring disorders. Please note, attendees are expected to be in attendance both days to receive a certificate of completion.
