    In this training we introduce attendees to the Pennsylvania Certification Board’s Codes of Ethical Conduct for Certified Peer Specialists, Certified Recovery Specialists, and Certified Family Recovery Specialists. We use the Codes of Conduct as our backdrop to frame discussion surrounding ethics related issues like fraud, waste, abuse, confidentiality, service approach, non-discrimination, integrity, etc.

    Additionally, this training covers setting and maintaining healthy boundaries with co-workers and the individuals served through real-life scenarios of potential ethical violations. Through this discussion participants learn to articulate their own beliefs and thoughts concerning these scenarios while being guided by the facilitators. The scenarios are framed from a learning perspective rather than a right/wrong one, in turn creating the space for participants to gain an understanding of their own ethical principles and values.

    “Forensic Peer Specialists embody the potential for recovery for people who confront the dual stigmas associated with serious mental illness and criminal justice involvement” (Davidson and Rowe, 2008)

    Description:

    This continuing education opportunity is designed to enhance the capacity of Certified Peer Specialists and Recovery Specialists to fulfill a serious gap in supportive services for justice involved individuals.

    Grounded in the philosophy of peer support services, this training uses a mutual-learning approach and dialogue-driven process to develop understanding of the impact of forensic involvement and introduces the Sequential Intercept Model as a tool to highlight the unique needs of individuals and discover resources necessary to effectively navigate within and beyond the criminal justice system.

    Learning Objectives:

    By the end of this training participants will gain knowledge and skills to:

    • Use lived experiences as an example of recovery and resiliency
    • Identify and advocate for the needs of individuals in the criminal justice system
    • Assist an individual in navigating service systems (mental health, criminal justice, etc.)
    • Model self-advocacy such that an individual learns how-to advocate for himself/herself
    • Support the individual's journey toward achieving personal recovery goals

    The primary goal of this workshop is to aid Certified Peer Specialist and Certified Recovery Specialist Supervisors, and other clinical staff, in discovering ways to tailor their staff supervision in order bring out the best in their staff and create a cohesive team atmosphere. Through the use audio and visual technology, and existing sources on the topic, we will explore what works, and what doesn’t, when viewing supervision through a Peer Based lens. We will explore why proper supervision is a key component to successfully integrating peer based staff into organizations, while discussing strategies that supervisors can utilize within their organizations in making that integration a reality.

    This training is a supplement to, not a replacement for, the required, two-day supervision course offered through RI Consulting, the Institute for Recovery, or the Copeland Center.

    This training will explore the relevant Federal and State regulations governing drug and alcohol confidentiality in Pennsylvania. 

    Participants will learn about 42 CFR Part 2, including when and what type of information can be released, the required elements of a valid consent, how a consent can be revoked, and PA specific laws governing confidentiality as they relate to Certified Recovery Specialist and Certified Family Recovery Specialists.  Participants will also engage in Case Studies to aid in increasing their practical application of the confidentiality laws.  At the end of this training participants will have an increased understanding of their duty to uphold confidentiality laws for the protection of the peer’s they work with, themselves as peer-based professionals, the agencies they work for, and the peer-based profession as a whole.

    Training Objectives

    • Learn about federal and state laws and regulation protecting privacy
    • Understand the rationale and importance of protecting our peers’ confidential information
    • Recognize which laws and regulations apply to your specific job
    • Define “confidentiality” as it applies to peer-based professionals
    • Explore the accountability of a CRS/CFRS as it applies to confidentiality through the exploration of case studies
