Webinar: "Peer Support for Youth and Young Adults"

 

Tuesday September 18, 2012 from 10:00am - 11:00am Pacific, 1:00pm - 2:00pm Eastern Time

 

This webinar reports on how peer support is currently being provided for youth and young adults around the United States. Our report is based on 40 interviews conducted with peer support specialists (PSS) and their

supervisors/administrators.

We will provide a summary of our main findings, including information about how the PSS role is defined; the nature of training, coaching and supervision; what sort of data/feedback is collected for quality assurance; and how the position is financed.
