Peer Consultation Group

We are proud to offer a regular peer consultation group which is FREE for our members. In this group we discuss cases, get support from our colleagues, and share resources for our clients

The group currently meets virtually via Zoom on the last Friday of every month. The group is facilitated by one of our Licensed Board Members and the group is limited to 12 participants at this time.


Group Rules

  1. By entering the group, every participant is making a commitment to respecting one another, even when there are differences of opinions.
  2. Confidentiality of group members is of paramount importance. What happens in group stays in group.
  3. While participating in the group virtually:
  4. Join from a quiet, private space that is free from distractions and interruptions by others.
  5. Use headphones while in group if there are others present in the physical space with you. Please take measures to avoid having other people nearby overhear what is being discussed in group.
  6. Please ensure that your camera is on, and faced on you for the duration of the group.
  7. When you are not sharing, please mute your microphone to reduce background noise and interruptions.
  8. Please refrain from engaging in side activities during the group time (e.g. talking or texting on the phone, working on other screens on the computer, engaging in side discussions, etc.)
