Dates: March 13-14, 2018
Time: 9 - 5 pm both days
Location: MHP - Delaware County, 7200 Chestnut Street, Upper Darby, PA  19082

This training is designed to take your skills as a CPS and apply them with justice-involved persons in recovery who may still be incarcerated, may be about to return to their community or are already living in the community.  While some  share this lived experience, others do not.  We all, however,  share in the desire to support a positive process of community reintegration.  

The goal of this training is for you to gain the knowledge and skills that, woven together with your CPS backgrounds, will allow you to provide peer support to justice involved persons in recovery as they re-enter their communities in a way that is holistic, aware, ethical and effective.
