Dear Leader,

As COVID-19 continues to impact corrections, causing officers higher levels of work-related stress than ever before, providing effective peer support is essential. However, nearly 50% of readers who responded to a Corrections1 poll last year reported that their agency does not have a peer support program. This month's C1 Leaders eNewsletter outlines some key steps to help correctional facilities create a peer support program and deliver effective psychological support to personnel. Check out:
  • 6 steps for peer support success
  • 3 therapeutic models to consider
  • 5 essential pillars of a peer support program
