Learning Community for Family Leaders - Ethics for Parent Peer Support Providers
3:30pm - 5:00pm (ET) on Thursday, April 19, 2018
Ethics is a core competency for parent peer support providers (PPSP) however; guidance in this area is very limited and often not applicable to the unique role of a PPS provider. The ethical dilemmas faced by PPS providers differ from those encountered by adult peer support providers or clinicians.
In response to a need for guidance in ethics from the field, FREDLA convened a group of family leaders to develop an Ethics Workbook for Parent Peer Support Providers that provides a framework for addressing ethical dilemmas. Several family-run organizations piloted the workbook and offered feedback for the final version.
If you are a PPS provider or a program director of a family-run organization join us for this webinar that will cover examples of the codes of ethics for PPSPs and the three main areas PPSPs experience challenging ethical situations: working with families, interactions in the workplace and behavior in the community and with partners. The Ethics Workbook will be available to download during the webinar.
