Supervising Peer Recovery Support Professionals

July 1 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

This 90-minute webinar aims to equip professionals in the mental health and addiction field with the skills needed to effectively supervise and support peer support specialists and other lived-experience professionals in behavioral health settings. These individuals provide a valuable service by drawing on their own experiences with recovery to inspire others, model effective coping strategies, and support engagement in services. However, supervising them presents unique challenges due to the specific nature of their roles and the central role that their personal experiences play in their work with others. Through this webinar, you will gain insights into the complexities and unique challenges that may arise when supervising these professionals and how best to support them in the peer role.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a comprehensive supervision plan tailored to the unique needs of peer support specialists and other lived-experience professionals in behavioral health settings.
  • Enhance communication and collaboration to create a supportive and inclusive work environment.
  • Foster resilience and self-care practices to prevent burnout and promote well-being.
  • Apply ethical considerations and boundaries in supervision.
  • Understand the importance of ongoing professional development and support.
