What is a Peer Consultation Group?  

A peer consultation group is comprised of clinicians who meet regularly to provide feedback and support as they discuss challenging cases, ethical dilemmas, professional issues, and the effects of work on their well-being.  In peer consultation each consultee retains all the responsibility for the client's treatment.   Consultee's are free to accept or reject input given.   Peer consultants have no responsibility for the client’s care.

What are the advantages of Peer Consultation Groups?

    • Receive emotional support
    • Increase a sense of community to reduce the risk of burnout
    • Improve clinical skills and effectiveness
    • Network with colleagues
    • Discover resources
    • Consult with colleagues about ethical responsibilities  
    • Reduce malpractice risk by recognizing and addressing thorny clinical situations
