Practical Skills

Practical skills are the skills that you acquire
by your own life experiences.

This means that the peer supporters know
how they can use their life experiences
to help and support others.

They can use their own experiences
in different areas of life,
like work, independent living, personal relations, political participation, rights and other things.

By sharing their life experiences they will be able
to show how to be included and respected.

For example, participants will learn
how to take decisions,
how they can learn from mistakes,
or the importance of gathering information
before taking a decision
and where to find help if needed.
