Ethical Considerations for Recovery Coaches

16 Hour Course

Recovery coaching as a peer-to-peer recovery support services has grown exponentially over the past few years. The issue of ethical considerations has been discussed in many circles yet formal training has been lacking for recovery coaches. This 16 hour training addresses this critical need. Based on the widely used Ethical Guidelines for the Delivery of Peer-based Recovery Support Services by William White and PRO-ACT (2007), we designed this training to help coaches, and anyone else working in the peer role, to understand how critical it is to be ethically responsible.  Using presentations, small group work, and role play  to address many areas including defining the coaching service role and functions, coaching standards, issues of vulnerability, ethical decision making, performance enhancement, and legal issues.  This year we have added an additional half-day of training, to allow for more opportunities to practice using relevant scenarios coaches may face on a daily basis.
