2 days, 09:00 AM CST - 04:00 PM CST
This 2-day, interactive course in Ethics will give the Veteran Peer Specialist the opportunity to review basic Ethical standards learned in original peer certification as well as talk about what VHA Directive 1163 means to the Veterans ethical responsibilities. We will break down each ethical standard and discuss what they look like in daily practice. The course will provide ethical dilemmas to be resolved through discussion and role-plays as well as provide opportunities to discuss and resolve the participants own situations involving ethics, possible ethical violations and what could have been done differently. Participating Veteran Peer Specialists will walk away with a more advanced understanding around our own ethical accountability and the value this brings to the Veterans we serve and the VA as a whole.
