Topic: How to stay true to peer values in a managed care work environment
Billy Gamble and Tracy Puglisi
Join us! Billy and Tracy will lead a discussion based on a presentation they gave at the New York Peer Specialist Certification Board 2019 Conference. In this 30-40 minute educational segment of the Networking Meeting we will explore how our peer support values can be upheld when working in a managed care environment. Together, we will consider the fundamentals of peer support and peer services, as well as their unique differences from each other and from traditional services.

January 23
Flying Solo: The challenges of the peer role in unsupportive environments.  (Denise Ranaghan and Jeannie Dewan)

We will review what contributes to oppressive environments and what we ourselves can do to cope with them. We will also outline what is necessary from leadership to create healthy and safe work cultures where everyone is valued. We cannot expect to change a culture where automatic thoughts equate "peer" with "mentally ill" as opposed to our fellow traveler.

January 30
