Intentional Peer Support Core Training

March 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - March 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

This is a special one time only event! MHAV is excited to sponsor an IPS Core Training here in Virginia!

Based on Shery Mead’s book, Intentional Peer Support: An Alternative Approach, IPS Core Training is a 5-day introduction to this innovative framework and is designed to have you practicing right away. In a highly interactive environment, participants learn the tasks and principles of IPS, examine assumptions about who they are, and explore ways to create relationships in which power is negotiated, co-learning is possible, and support goes beyond traditional notions of “service.” IPS is all about opening up new ways of seeing, thinking, and doing, and here we examine how to make this possible.

The IPS Core Training is for anyone interested in mutual support and has been widely used as a foundation training for people working in both traditional and alternative mental health settings. IPS facilitators are Steven Morgan and Eva Dech.

Space is limited. Partial scholarships available. Application deadline is February 11, 2019.
