GSNV Peer-Support Training course 2017


Date & Time 21 November 2017, 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM
Venue Health Education Learning Precinct, The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne


Professional counsellors are helpful, but there is nothing more powerful than talking to someone who has been "in the same boat" as you.

Peer Support Training is available for all individuals, including staff from support groups. It is a one day workshop and our aim is to help you feel empowered to listen and talk to others who are in a similar position, and share your wisdom and experience.

Some areas that the Peer Support Training course will cover include:

  • active listening
  • communication skills
  • empowerment
  • self-care
  • community resources

You will receive a Statement of Attendance certificate upon completion as well an invitation to become a Peer Support Contact with the Genetic Support Network of Victoria.

Training is free for GSNV members.
