The Principles & Tasks of Intentional Peer Support Webinar
Wednesday, October 4th, 2017
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (ET)
The Principles and Tasks of Intentional Peer Support
Please join us for an overview of Intentional Peer Support (IPS), a framework for thinking about and creating transformative relationships. Through a series of principles and tasks, IPS practitioners learn to use relationships to see things from new angles, develop greater awareness of personal and relational patterns, and support and challenge each other in trying new things. IPS is used in peer support and other human services settings around the world. Visit www.intentionalpeersupport.org for more information.
About the Presenter:
Steven Morgan, Operations Manager
Steven Morgan has worked in peer support services for over a decade. He was originally trained as a Georgia Certified Peer Specialist and worked in traditional service agencies, where he became intimately familiar with the difficulties of practicing peer support within a medical model. This led to an interest in developing alternative supports, so in Vermont he helped create a peer-run respite, was Executive Director for four years of a peer-run agency called Another Way, and finally became project developer for Soteria-Vermont. Steven has provided many trainings in systems change at both a local and national level, and has served on several Boards of Directors for peer support organizations. In 2013, he joined Intentional Peer Support as Operations Manager with a passion for creating instruments of social change, a love of organizational development, and a belief in the transformative power of community. On full moons, he enjoys writing, playing music, woodworking, and taking long, long walks.
