The inpatient psychiatric unit is a unique environment. You may be working with a peer several times over several days, or you may speak to them one time and one time only. As such, working in acute care environments requires peer support workers to be flexible and adaptive in how they support the peers that they work with. This training will begin to equip you with the tools and techniques needed to be at your best in such complex environments, while acknowledging that the learning you will do once you are on the job in your new position will be absolutely invaluable.
