Peer Facilitator Training?

In describing the value of peer facilitators in helping partners move forward in their healing journeys, APSATS founder, Dr. Barbara Steffens, states:

“Partners can begin to heal and flourish in community. Unfortunately, the needs for partner communities is only increasing, and there is a limited number of people adequately trained to facilitate this safe, healing space in group settings. Well-trained and passionate peer group facilitators are perfect for meeting such a need in the majority of cases. Peer facilitators can provide support, encouragement, education, and safe space for partners to explore what they need to heal and to grow. I dream of having these types of groups/safe spaces in every faith, community, and even therapeutic setting to be front line 'first responders' as well as on-going support safe spaces."
