This is the page to access more information on registering for CPS and CPPS exams and other aspects of the Wisconsin Peer Specialist Employment Initiative supported by UW-Milwaukee School of Continuing Education.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) offers resources for recovery supports. CPS and CPPS in Wisconsin are required to be knowledgeable on the SAMHSA definition of recovery, “Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.”
If you’ve been looking for a space similar (and different) to our monthly Communities of Practice, you may want to check out the “Affinity Calls” hosted by the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence.
The structure for these calls is similar in that they have Affinity Calls for those in peer support roles and another track for those in supervisory roles to peer support workers (what they term Peer Recovery Support Specialists).
Though participation in these calls do not earn you continuing education credit at the current time, they are a valuable resource for deepening conversations, professional development, and networking on a more national scale.
