Facilitating peer-support groups requires a unique skillset and mindset; differing from therapy groups and individual therapy, peer-support groups center the peer relationships of the group participants and highlight shared experiences. This course will explore: expectation setting for group members, welcoming new group members, setting group rules, and saying goodbye to group members. This course will review several facilitation skills, utilize case examples, and discuss use of the virtual platform for peer support.
