Upcoming Webinars

New Monthly Consultation Series on Youth/Young Adult Peer Support

In partnership with Pathways Research and Training Center, the Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center is pleased to sponsor a series of monthly consultation web-meetings focused on "Advanced topics in strengthening youth/young adult peer support." Each meeting will have its own topic, in an area such as skill building, supervision, coaching and training, organizational policies and procedures, hiring and onboarding, and more. This series is intended primarily for peer support specialists, their supervisors, and administrators charged with implementing youth/young adult peer support.

The web meetings will be on the third Thursday of each month at 10–11 AM Pacific Time (1–2 PM Eastern). Each meeting will include a brief introduction to the week’s topic and a related practical resource – strategy, tool, set of research findings, template, etc. The meeting will then have a period of focused discussion in which attendees can ask questions and share knowledge and ideas relevant to the day’s topic, followed by an open discussion of any topic related to youth/young adult peer support.

To allow for interaction and discussion, registration will be limited. Register early (below) to ensure your space! Attendees from each meeting will be given priority to register for the next one.

Monthly Consultation for October, 2020: "Clarifying Your Peer Support Role/s"

Time: 10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET

This will be the first of a series of web meetings focusing on strengthening youth/young adult peer support. The topic for this call will be "Clarifying Your Peer Support Role/s." Research has shown that role clarity contributes to employees’ work satisfaction and retention. We will explore what this means in the context of youth/young adult peer support, and share resources to help with role clarification. We will also be asking participants about their priorities for future meeting topics.
