The recovery-oriented cognitive therapy training program for CPSs was very well received. The pilot program suggests that peers are not only able to learn new ways to conceptualize and assist their consumers but are also able to use this information to make sense of and enhance their own continued recovery. In future training sessions, we advise placing more emphasis on self-conceptualization, which appears to be an effective way to help peers grasp the skill of conceptualization and experience a sense of mastery and self-efficacy. These benefits may also result in enhanced efficacy to help their consumers. We also suggest that future programs feature self-care techniques, along with concrete ways for peers to share these skills with others in recovery. Finally, where possible, we recommend implementing a longer training program, with more frequent and practical meetings, to maximize the opportunities for trainees to learn, practice, and apply skills in a supported context.
