I one want to say thank you for this podcast. I am a Certified Peer and I do the Forensic piece and Recovery Coach that is an African American.
I just want to know when will there ever be a training that taylor around the African/ African Americans from the perspective of a African American in the life of a Peer. As I grow into the knowledge and experience I'm noticing that many lack the skills in dealing with this population. I've also discovered while working in the non-profit sector that there is so much of a gap in this area. Please let me know what you have to offer and I hope this makes sense.
