Event description

Description

Peer support occurs when people provide knowledge, experience, emotional, social or practical help to each other. It commonly refers to an initiative consisting of trained supporters, and can take a number of forms such as mentoring and listening. A peer has ‘been there, done that’ and can relate to others in a similar situation to themselves.

Join us for a 1 day training session designed to help our patients and families/whanau support others dealing with the challenges of amputation. This will be a practical event with the following modules:

● What is a Peer Support Volunteer?
● The benefits of Volunteering within the amputee community
● The importance of good communication – listening skills.
● The difference between Peer Support and Counselling
● Taking care of your own health and being a role
