1
Is all Peer Support the same?

There are many different kinds of peer
support and ways to practice peer
support.

Different ways of “doing” peer support
bring about different outcomes.
2
Intentional Peer Support asks:
What are we here to do?
Not
What are we here to stop?
3
What Is Intentional Peer
Support?
IPS is a purposeful way of being in
relationship.

It requires deep self-reflection (What’s my
agenda? What’s my assumption/bias?)

Curiosity and openness (How do you
understand things? Honor other’s beliefs.)

Expectation of learning from each other (We
both have much to learn, rather than I’m here to
help you.)
4
Intentional Peer Support is also…

Purposefully focusing on Communication
and Relationship.

Support and Help go both ways in a mutual
reciprocal relationship.

Both individuals learn and grow.

Each person is the ‘expert’ about themselves
and together, in an IPS relationship, a new
‘story’ is created.
5
Traditional Crisis Response

Crisis Stabilization = Moving Away from
what you don’t want

Crisis Respite = Resting

Keeping people safe = Coercion

Skills to cope = Dealing with & maintaining
status quo.

Problem Solving = Directing and advising
6
How can we change what we’re
currently doing?
Change our Fear Based conversations
to conversations that are Hope Based
Fear Based = Moving Away from
what we don’t want.
Hope Based = Moving Toward what
we do want!
7
Fear-Based Response vs..
Hope- Based Response
When we’re afraid we want to contain or control the
situation. We want things to feel comfortable.

When we respond out of fear we take power.

Fear is sometimes generated by outside forces and
stories (such as by our community).

A hope-based response means that you and the other
person see an opportunity to learn and grow.

A hope-based response is contingent on both people’s
needs
8
Learning Vs Help
Assuming we are there to help assumes
there is a problem (disconnect)
 Sometimes we “help” based on our own
experience with help (worldview)
 Co-learning does not assume that either
one is there to teach (mutuality)
 An emphasis on learning assumes growth
(moving towards)
