We have two courses running throughout May 2022. These are detailed below.
This Peer Support training is scheduled on the following dates for the forces listed below:
- 13th May 2022 - Various forces
- 27th May 2022 - Various forces
This bespoke course equips Superintendents and Chief Superintendents with skills to provide help and guidance on a range of issues to others within their ranks, acting as a critical friend to colleagues needing independent support. The training also supports self-development.
The training has been developed to help the PSA in their commitment to supporting the wellbeing of its members, who are the most senior operational leaders in the service.
This work will also help to establish a Peer Support for Wellbeing network across the country at Superintendent and Chief Superintendent level.
Is this course for me?
This training package is based on our OK Peer Support for Wellbeing model which has been designed by the National Police Wellbeing Service (NPWS) in conjunction with the PSA, specifically for those operating in emergency services environments.
The training covers the following areas:
- What is Peer Support?
- Communication and supportive relationships
- Stigma and non-clinician conditions
- Mental health awareness and clinical input
This is a one-day training course.
What previous delegates are saying about this course
Excellent course and one of the best I have done in a long time.
This is a tremendous programme. The necessity for wellbeing services (in particular peer support) is fundamental to understanding the trauma many of us have experienced and will help to prevent stresses becoming critical and hopefully help to heal those who have suffered and become very poorly. A brilliant day.
