Loving Support© Through Peer Counseling:
A Journey Together
is an innovative and comprehensive curriculum program developed by Every Mother, Inc. for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) for establishing and maintaining evidence-based peer counseling programs in WIC agencies across the United States.  Peer counseling has been an important focus in the WIC Program to provide mother-to-mother support for WIC mothers who breastfeed.

The program includes two curricula:
Loving Support© Through Peer Counseling: A Journey Together – FOR WICMANAGERS provides State and local WIC agency managers and peer counselor coordinators/supervisors with practical strategies for implementing an effective peer counseling program. It addresses such topics as the FNS Loving Support© Model, management considerations in establishing a program, recruiting and hiring peer counselors, scope of practice, supervising and mentoring peer counselors, and retaining staff.

Loving Support© Through Peer Counseling:
A Journey Together – FOR TRAINING PEER COUNSELORS provides numerous resources for training peer counselors.

The curricula include an innovative and cutting edge presentation design that is highly visual and employs a flexible navigation approach.  It also includes speaker notes, handouts, trainer guides, a Peer Counseling Handbook, and numerous graphic components.  The package components will be available for downloading soon at the WIC Works Resource System at http://www.nal.usda.gov/wicworks/Learning_Center.
