Peer Support Research Questions from the Perspective of iNAPS Attendees

Dr. Mark Salzer and Dr. Liz Thomas gave a workshop at the International Association of Peer Supporters (iNAPS) annual conference, held in Philadelphia in August 2016. Dr. Salzer presented on the current state of the peer support research literature, and Dr. Thomas facilitated a discussion about attendees’ perceptions of the most important research questions for the field. Attendees were highly engaged, generating a list of about 30 questions with topics ranging from the effectiveness of different types of peer support and the contexts that facilitate effectiveness to characteristics of the researchers and how the research is currently being used. This Center product was developed in an effort to disseminate these questions.
