Peer Supporter Training

Peer Supporter Training

This 5-day course entails training public safety staff to be able to offer social support to their peers who may be experiencing distress due to critical incidents or other life stressors on or off the job. The course covers subjects such as confidentiality and its limits, active listening skills, dealing with peers who may be a threat to themselves or others, assisting peers in their decision-making and problem-solving process, peer supporter team operational issues, and a variety of other topics. The course involves extensive role plays. (This course may be offered as a 4-day training to certified CF2F Instructors.)

I appreciated that the material was specific to Corrections. I believe that this program will benefit the employees as well as the department.

I was skeptical at first of both the CF2F and Peer Support. But after the CF2F class it seemed to be like waking from a dream. I saw so many of my coworkers who are far gone into the fatigue and in desperate need of peer support. I am excited to help them.

This training is true to correctional officer needs to help them get through obstacles they are facing at work or in their home life. It seems that we (Correctional Officers) are pushed to the back about our feelings, and it feels good to know there is help and training for the jobs we have to endure day in and day out. Desert Waters, thanks for the training and the future looks bright.

The role-playing really helped out, and I feel like it was an important part of learning how to be a peer supporter. It was a little bit of an uncomfortable subject on dealing with peers who are suicidal, but I am optimistic that with continued practice, it will get easier.
