What is a Peer Contact?
"Listen and Refer." A Peer Contact's main duty is to “Listen and Refer.” Peer Contacts understand “most people don’t want their way, they just want their say.” We have found that most people can resolve their own issues if they can use the below process of stress reduction:
- Blow off steam (Just talking about it helps to clear the air).
- Focus clearly on the problem at hand.
- Discuss and consider alternatives and consequences.
