Peer Support Developer's Training - Now Available On Demand

In partnership with Dr. Susan Scott, the Center for Patient Safety (CPS) has launched a new format for the Peer Support (Second Victim) Train-the-Trainer workshop. The new program format allows for self-paced learning through video modules and complementary online guides developed by Dr. Scott and the patient safety experts at CPS.

We are excited to announce a partnership between the Center for Patient Safety and Dr. Susan Scott to provide the Second Victim/Peer Support Train-the-Trainer program in an on-demand format. Together, we've expanded the resources and enhanced the original training while maintaining the most important aspects of the program.  

Whether you are developing a new program from scratch, enhancing an existing program, or simply looking for a more effective way to train your peer supporters, this program is flexible and has the components you'll need.

The program includes a unique set of tools, allowing individuals to learn independently and at their own pace. The program contains:

  • A 56-page Program Developer Guide with a 65-minute companion video by Dr. Susan Scott
  • Four training modules to self-educate the program developer or to train peer supporters. Training videos consist of instruction presented by Dr. Susan Scott and contributing author, Eunice Halverson from the Center for Patient Safety.
  • A 16-page Peer Support Workbook designed to complement Peer Supporter Training.
  • Case studies and small group exercises
  • Video resources, self-care resources, and references
  • Access to all resources for 6-months
