Why Peer Based Programming Works
Why peer based programming? Peer based programming has had tremendous results in such areas as mental health and substance abuse recovery, rape crisis victims, as well as, assisting those who are victims of domestic violence. Studies show that people respond better to information from persons who have gone through similar life situations such as the ones listed above. Consequently, one size fits all programming rarely works in improving client performance measurement outcomes or employee outcomes for staff members.
Further, peer based programming has now become an acceptable model for rehabilitation within and without the criminal justice system, mental health agencies and other agencies that work with marginalized populations. In order to provide a seamless delivery of services the client must be properly informed and trained on all the options available through transition assistance provided by your agency. Proper information and training for both clients and staff members result in better performance outcomes for both clients and staff members.
