Care for the Caregiver Peer Training Session on 7/28

Program trains managers and staff to identify colleagues and other staff in need of support
May 13, 2022

The Resiliency & Well-being Center will hold a Peer Training Session for the Care for the Caregiver Program (CFC) at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 28, 2022, for GW School of Medicine & Health Sciences (SMHS) and Medical Faculty Associates (MFA) staff. 

The program trains managers and staff to identify colleagues and other staff in need of support, provide brief counseling, and link to additional EAP resources.  After this training, you as a Peer Caregiver, will be able to conduct brief (20-30min) conversation sessions with colleagues and other staff in distress to help support them and potentially guide them towards further support resources.  The goal is to have a Peer Caregiver representative available in every department throughout the SMHS and MFA.
