Peer Leader Training is four 8-hour days. This training will consist of two days the first week (November 7 & 8) and two the following week (November 14 & 15). Training will be held in English.
Leaders are individuals interested in teaching and empowering others to better manage their chronic conditions and to live a healthy life. As a leader, you will have the satisfying task of integrating the contents of the program and learning group facilitation skills that can be transferred to other areas of your life. Most importantly, you will watch people affected by chronic conditions successfully manage their health conditions by using the skills and tools that you have shared with them.
Leaders may be lay people or health care professionals. Regardless, they act as peers when leading the workshop, not as health experts. Two Peer Leaders always work together to deliver the workshops.
*You must be able to attend all four training sessions to be certified
