As peer advocates enter the work force in substance use treatment, many supervisors are not prepared with the knowledge and skills necessary to supervise their peers effectively and efficiently. This course will review many topics around supervision: what it is, how it is different for peers, and the challenges to supervising peers. Ways of supervision that have worked for people will also be discussed.
