CPS/CPPS Supervisors’ Community of Practice

In the first few gatherings of the CPS/CPPS Community of Practice (see below), a need and desire was expressed for a Community of Practice specifically for those providing supervision to CPS or CPPS.

This resulted in the CPS/CPPS Supervisors’ Community of Practice, and is for people who can say both of the following:Two women sit at a table, as one smiles and rests her chin on her hand.

CPS/CPPS Community of Practice

In March of 2020, we launched a Certified Peer Specialist/Certified Parent Peer Specialist Community of Practice monthly gathering. This is a gathering created with the intention of supporting CPS and CPPS from across Wisconsin in learning, sharing, practicing, and growing together.

So far, we have discussed topics including working from home, addressing and approaching grief and loss, supervision, systems change, collective self-care, peer support in “crisis” situations, and the intersections of culture, power, and privilege. We hope to continue offering this space to improve professional peer support services in Wisconsin and connect as a workforce.

This Community of Practice is for people who can say both of the following:

1. I am a Certified Peer Specialist or Certified Parent Peer Specialist in Wisconsin.The background image shows two friends sit on either side of another, supporting them, as they navigate some intense feelings.

2. I want to engage in a supportive, collaborative learning-based Community of Practice with other CPS/CPPS in Wisconsin.
