This workshop will focus on supervising Peer Support Specialists in the substance use and mental health workforce. Peer Supports perform a unique role and many agencies and staff are unsure how to provide appropriate supervision. We will discuss what appropriate supervision looks like and how that can be vary depending on job duties. This workshop is for Peer Supports and the professionals who supervise them… either clinically or administratively. The goal is to integrate Peer Supports in to multi-disciplinary teams and to provide an atmosphere where they can grow personally and professionally. We will draw from professional experience, theoretical frameworks, and the collective experience of the workshop attendees. We will explore areas for growth in our agencies and supervision practices and discuss some of the “gray areas” of overlap between disciplines.
