Empowerment is one of the essential tools used to promote an individual's self-determination to engage and manage their challenges in the clinical system. However, peer specialists can make even more of an impact when other colleagues understand the important role a peer specialist can play in recovery. Learning how to communicate with other service providers will, in return, create solid allies that facilitate one's wellness and recovery. This webinar will offer tips developed through our skills as peer specialists to empower colleagues as allies in our work.
Presenter: Vivian Nuñez, BSW, CPS, grew up in Puerto Rico and moved to Massachusetts 34 years ago. For the past 10 years, she has worked as a Peer Support Training Specialist providing self-empowerment recovery and wellness educational initiatives to members of hard to reach community groups.
