Exploring the Ethics of Peer Support

As peer workers, we are committed to providing the best care possible, rooted in peer-centered values of choice, autonomy, and ethics. Join us for a 2-hour presentation and discussion on the ethics of peer support, with a special focus on the impact of perceived credibility on our work and support for peers.


Key Takeaways:

  • A comprehensive understanding of perceived credibility and shared reality, and how those concepts impact the work of peer workers and the individuals they support.
  • An understanding of the role of ethics in peer work.
  • An understanding of how to discuss ethical concerns with peers, peer workers, and clinical coworkers.
