Advocacy Unlimited’s Quarterly Advocacy Meeting: Advocating For Yourself in the Field
Friday, August 2, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
This interactive session with Maggie and Latosha offers practical advice and tools to initiating difficult conversations, that may be tough, but worth it!
Advocacting for others may come naturally for many of us, and often it is easier to defend others than ourselves.
Understanding and advocacting for the unique roles that peer professionals play, are essential to delivering authentic peer support and recovery driven services.
Advocacting for one self starts with the ability to have “courageous” conversations.
We RSS’s have an obligation, not only to advocate for others, but for ourselves in the workplace!
