Ethical Considerations
to Jun 8

Ethical Considerations

This training will span two days, Friday and Saturday from 9 to 5

Ethics trainings are not all created equal.  Recovery Coaches need an understanding of ethics that differs from those of clinicians due to their unique role and recovery process.

Recovery coaching as a peer-to-peer recovery support services has grown exponentially over the past few years. The issue of ethical considerations has been discussed in many circles, yet formal training has been lacking for recovery coaches. This 16 hour training addresses this critical need. Based on the widely used Ethical Guidelines for the Delivery of Peer-based Recovery Support Services by William White and PRO-ACT (2007), this training is designed to help coaches, and anyone else working in the peer role, to understand how critical it is to be ethically responsible. 

We will use presentations, small group work, and role play  to address role functions, coaching standards, issues of vulnerability, ethical decision making, performance enhancement and legal issues.  

We will practice using relevant scenarios coaches face on a daily basis.
