We’ve been providing peer support training and development courses for many years. Even before we created Peer Support Central as a way to provide access to peer support training and development courses to interested parties online, our founders, Jim Hyde and Susan Feenstra, were leading the charge for peer support programs in their own communities.

Many people wonder what it would be like to take one of our peer support training and development courses, so we decided to put together a sneak peek of topics that are often covered in these educational programs.

As always, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have about enrollment. Feel free to contact us!

1. Pre-Crisis Preparation

This is the everyday task of the peer support specialist: to encourage and demonstrate stress management techniques, carry out crisis education events, and engage with leadership in creating crisis management policies.

2. Community Support Programs

Another important task of the peer support specialist, these “town meetings” provide an opportunity for the larger community to discuss and process critical incidents.

3. Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD)

As we discussed in a previous post, this is one of the most vital aspects of any critical incident stress management (CISM) program. Our peer support training and development courses will teach you how to conduct CISDs and integrate them into your larger CISM program.

Our peer support training and development courses are comprehensive, with special elements designed for those who’re just getting acquainted with the basics as well as those who’re looking to take their training to the next level. Enroll today!
