Abstract
P eer supporters bring the expertise of having lived and navigated the recovery experience, informing and enhancing clinical client-centered practices. Peer supporters are often viewed by clients as being more culturally competent as a result of life experience and can be more effective from a multicultural perspective. This workshop will incorporate the experience of a credentialed young, minority peer with lived recovery experience. Discussions will center on the Four Change Practice Principles: 1. Changing practice at an individual level 2. Focusing on change through recovery oriented training and including peer recovery training for staff and clients 3. Incorporating organizational changes to respond on an individual level 4. Collaborating to focus on valuing the changing workforce roles of peer supporters in behavioral health settings In addition, speakers will take an in depth examination of The Practice Guidelines for Resilience and Recovery Oriented Treatment as described by the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disability Services
