Integrated-Forensic Peer Recovery Specialist Training
Implementing Peer Support Services in the Criminal Justice System
SAFE Project’s I-FPRS trains Certified Peer Recovery Specialists in navigating the complexities associated with the cross-section of the behavioral health and criminal justice setting (jails and prisons, reentry programs, community-based programs, treatment programs, probation offices, psychiatric settings, etc.). Participants who complete the ToT will become certified to deliver the I-FPRS training to Peer Recovery Specialists and supervisors within their respective states.
Who Should Become a Certified I-FPRS Trainer?
Only individuals who successfully complete SAFE Project’s I-FPRS ToT can become certified. The ToT training is appropriate for those with working knowledge of the peer recovery support scope of practice who can help to facilitate this training across their states. It is primarily directed towards larger organizations, multiple organizations coming together in a single state, and state agencies. Please contact SAFE Project to request a formal proposal. If you are a Peer Recovery Specialist seeking this I-FPRS training, please speak with your state’s agency or certification board to bring the ToT to your state or check out below for more information about one of our upcoming quarterly virtual participant trainings.
