The International Association of Peer Supporters recently conducted a nation-wide project to establish agreement on the core values of peer support, which are now forming the basis of practice standards for this emerging profession. In this keynote, Steve talks about what peer support is from the self-help perspective, from the perspective of peer support as a unique and emerging professional discipline, and from the perspective of including peer support providers on an integrated treatment or service team. Peer support providers work to establish trust by sharing relevant examples from their own experience in ways that inspired hope and a belief that recovery is possible -- not only for the person receiving services, but to inspire the entire team as well.
