Upcoming Continuing Education Trainings

PaPSC Trainings

Certified Peer Specialists in Crisis Services

Like the other skill enhancement trainings in Pennsylvania (forensics, veterans, older adults) this training is designed to give the participants extra skills to specialize in a particular service area.

This training is specifically designed to prepare CPSs to work in crisis services (telephone, mobile, walk-in, and residential). Topics covered include the Mental Health Procedures Act, roles and responsibilities of a CPS in crisis services, de-escalation, and suicide assessment and prevention.

If you are interested in brining this training to your area or if you represent an organization interested in sponsoring a training please contact us at: info@papsc.org.

Orientation to Medicaid Funded Peer Support Documentation

Several years ago an Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services workgroup convened and created a training based on the minimum state requirements for documentation.

Participants learn about the purposes of documentation, and examine and learn how to write a Strength Based Assessment, Individual Service Plan, and Progress Notes. There is also a section on Collaborative Documentation.

If you are interested in brining this training to your area or if you represent an organization interested in sponsoring a training please contact us at: info@papsc.org.
