Recovery Coaching in Healthcare Settings – Mutual Support Space
Randy Morrison will lead a monthly space for peer supporters (recovery coaches, CIPSS) in Maine will offer mutual support to explore the challenges and opportunities of working within healthcare settings and to offer training. It will build a space for peer supporters to connect with each other, create a community of support, develop skills, and identify strategies to support themselves (self-care). It is offered to those working in such settings as primary care, emergency departments, substance use treatment clinics, behavioral health clinics, etc. This mutual support space begins February 16th, from 1 pm to 2 pm, and continues monthly, third Thursday through June 15.
Randy Morrison, CCAR Recovery Coach trainer, Intentional Peer Support Trainer, and experienced co-reflection facilitator will lead the group.
(Note that peer supporters involved in the mutual support space retain sole responsibility for the plan of their interaction and care of those they serve along with their programs and organizations. No personal health care information will be shared in these groups.)
