Supervisors of CPS & CPPS 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 Supervisors of CPS & CPPS Community of Practice, and is for people who can say both of the following:

1. I have worked as a Certified Peer Specialist, Certified Parent Peer Specialist, or in a similar peer role and have my own relevant lived experience.

2. I also supervise other Certified Peer Specialists or Certified Parent Peer Specialists in Wisconsin.

Due to Some Facilitator Rescheduling and the Volume of Trainings Currently, There Will be No July Supervisors of CPS & CPPS Community of Practice. 

We are working on developing a standalone employer resource page to assist current and potential employers of CPS and CPPS as well as supervisory supports. This will be launched by the end of July.

 

CPS & CPPS Community of Practice

In March of 2020, we launched a Certified Peer Specialist and Certified Parent Peer Specialist Community of Practice monthly gathering. This was 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 a wide range of topics that support a dynamic workforce of intentional and engaged CPS and CPPS. We hope to continue offering this space to improve professional peer support and parent peer support services in Wisconsin and to 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.

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

Due to Some Facilitator Rescheduling and the Volume of Trainings Currently, There Will be No July Supervisors of CPS & CPPS Community of Practice. 

Our July facilitators and topic will be rescheduled. Please see the schedule below for August and September facilitators and topics.
