MPATTC RCO 3-Part Training Series: Part II Peer Supervision Training Basics


This is a closed training.

Peer Supervision is a collaborative activity between a supervisor and a worker in which the supervisor provides guidance and support to the worker to promote competent and ethical delivery of services. Supervision also supports the continued development of the worker’s application of accepted professional peer work knowledge, skills and values. Supervision should be a priority for early-career peer workers and is an investment that benefits employees, employers and service recipients. It is important that supervision is accessible and happens (SAMHSA, BRSS-TACS, 2022).

This presentation is based on the Peer Supervision Curriculum originally designed in 2018 to support individuals supervising Peer Recovery Support staff in the Commonwealth of Kentucky as one of their initial projects under the State Targeted Response funding from SAMHSA. In 2020, the curriculum was adapted by the Southeast Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) to expand the language in way that can be used for any state or ATTC Region and included an overall update as well as new content focused on telehealth, recovery planning, diversity, equity and inclusion. Recover Wyoming Executive Director, Lana Mahoney, attended a 1-day National ATTC Training of Trainers based on the adapted curriculum and has selected material from the training to present during this 3-hour Peer Specialist Supervision Basics workshop. During this training, participants will: Understand effective supervision and its impact; Understand strengths-based, person-centered supervision; Learn about three main types of supervision and supplements to traditional supervision; Recognize slippery slopes for supervisors/slippery slopes for peer specialists; and Highlight self-care and wellness for supervisors.
