Family Member Story Telling Training
November 9, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Family Member Story Telling Training (FM-STT) is a FREE recovery-and-resilience-based Training. It recognizes that the stories of Family Members (Parents, Grandparents, Children, Siblings, Partners, Sponsors, Mentors, Faith, Friends, Family of Choice, Support Staff, etc.), play a vital role with assisting people who benefit from and contribute to systematic transformation.
This training is open to everyone (18 and older) and offers many helpful tools which encourages the sharing of personal and challenging experiences with others to help inspire and motivate them, along with creating mutual understanding. It also provides vast opportunities to network and share resources, along with being a positive gateway for those who wish to help others through their own life experiences; helps others to navigate through the Behavioral Health System, while supporting families, faith and communities. It is also a requirement for those seeking to become a “Certified Peer Specialist” (CPS).
