Previous Events

Connecting in a Changing World (Apr 2020)

Online group co-reflection sessions

QLEWN hosted on-line group co-reflection sessions via Zoom twice a week during April, recognising the importance of connecting the Lived Experience workforce in the changing COVID-19 pandemic environment. Feedback from participants of the online group co-reflection sessions indicated a strong desire for the continuance of co-reflective spaces (within and beyond the COVID-19 response). As such, monthly QLEWN Peer Workers Community of Practice (CoP) and QLEWN Peer Leaders and Peer Supervisors Community of Practice (CoP) groups were established. Please refer to current member events for details of these sessions.
