You will remember from session two that having an awareness of worldview is important in peer support. Worldview refers to our personal philosophy and view on life. It is about the beliefs, values and attitudes we live by and is the frame of reference by which we see the world.
It can be summarised as:
- How we interpret events.
- How we perceive others.
- How we view ourselves.
As a peer supporter being aware we all have different worldviews, and being open to that, helps in establishing good relationships.
