The Peer Workforce Development ECHO Clinic provides professional development for Certified Recovery Peer Specialists (CRPS) new to the field. Although training and certification processes vary by state and organization, SAMHSA’s Core Competencies for Peer Workers in Behavioral Health (2015) “identifies the critical knowledge, skills and abilities needed by anyone who provides peer support services to people with or in recovery from a mental health or substance use condition.” To support and expand upon core competencies, the Peer Workforce Development ECHO offers a bi-monthly, 1.5 hour long ECHO session with an inter-professional team of behavioral health and peer recovery specialists focused on enhancing the skills and abilities of peer specialists to assist peers in the recovery process and connect with other peer specialists new to field work. This clinic includes an opportunity to engage in expert-led didactic presentations, present cases, receive real-time case consultation and recommendations from specialists, and become part of a safe, collaborative learning community of practice.
