Supervising Peer Support Staff Webinar
May 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Using peer specialists, coaches, and mentors to provide support and other services is a rapidly growing trend in behavioral health and integrated care services. In the past decade, there has been significant growth in this workforce segment as well as increasing options for training and certification. Yet, many behavioral health organizations continue to be uncertain about the best ways to provide support and supervision to peer staff. This webinar will offer an overview of the current literature, national trends and data; explore common misconceptions about peer staff; and offer some effective approaches to ensuring that the needs of both the organization and peer staff are effectively addressed. Practical applications, challenges, and lessons learned will be discussed.
