On Friday, June 26th the Self Help Resource Centre facilitated Introduction to Peer Facilitation Training at Houselink. A number of topics were covered including: how to create an action plan for starting a peer support group, how to establish a comfort agreement, what strength based language is and how to handle and resolve conflict. A supportive and inclusive environment was created through the group’s participation in discussions and active listening. In addition to a great presentation and engaging discussions there was also a lovely lunch provided by Houselink.
