Peer Leadership(PAL Project Training)
Course is design for the development and enhancement of individual and network peer leadership and advocacy skills. How do we get a seat at the table, have our voice be heard and create real change.
Advance Psychiatric Directives (PAL Project Training)
APD’s are an effective recovery tool for those with mental health challenges. Training provides detailed instruction for developing and registering an APD.
While our trauma is neither our identity nor our destiny, we often become imprisoned in the past and immobilized in our present when our experience of pain overwhelms our ability to overcome, inevitably inhibiting our hope and the possibility of future opportunity. This 2-hour training focuses on the tools, skills, and best practices that are instrumental to intervening amid another’s crisis experience. We learn how to divert others away from distressed thinking, and redirect them into a space of acceptance, awareness, and reflection that ignites hope, motivates self-empowerment, and inspires self-directed healing.
This innovative training opportunity will challenge you to expand your curiosity and compassionately grow your understanding of the impact of culture on every human experience. Together, we will journey through cultural awareness and cultural competence to where cultural sensitivity, reverence, and cultural humility converge. Join us as we transcend cultural separation, seek to reconnect people and populations, and celebrate the unique and individual richness of the whole of humanity.
(formerly Recovery program Must-Haves)
What is recovery? How does your program embrace these principles? How will you demonstrate the effectiveness of the recovery program? These are just a few of the questions we will be discussing and hopefully, answering in this training. Come prepared to work, this is not a passive training and requires attendee participation. This training can be provided virtually or in person.
MPN has been trained by the National Trauma Informed Center in Washington DC as facilitators of Trauma Informed Peer Support. This is an 6 hour interactive training that provides an introduction to and over of the key concepts in SAMHSA’s technical assistance document, Engaging Women in Trauma Informed Peer Support: A Guidebook. Although the guidebook was developed to support women, the training itself has been adapted for all trauma survivors.
Professional development is an integrative module that combines continuing education (a requirement for ongoing CBHPSS certification & licensure), mentoring support, and self-care. Individually, each promotes personal and professional awareness and helps ensure that a CBHPSS maintains current practices and skills essential to supporting others in recovery. Collectively, these aspects merge to promote professionalism and the integrity of the CBHPSS workforce. This PS102 module is designed to facilitate awareness of why continuing education is important and highlight the inevitably positive, intersectional influence of workforce mentoring and self-care throughout all dimensions of a peer specialist’s personal and professional experience, support professional development, and enhance the support we provide.
eCPR is based on the principles found to be shared by several support approaches: trauma-informed care, counseling after disasters, peer support, emotional intelligence, suicide prevention, and cultural attunement. It was developed with input from individuals across the U.S., who have learned how to recover and grow from emotional crises. They have wisdom by the grace of first-hand experience.
