Peer Support Supervision is critical to effective peer support programming. This session will focus on key elements of designing a supervision model that can effectively meet and monitor the team’s needs and creates opportunities for ongoing skill-building. This includes mechanism for feedback, designing one-on-one supervision sessions, and discussing common challenges to peer support supervision. There will be particular attention on how to implement aspects of the peer support model into the supervision structure and how power dynamics are considered in supervisory relationships. The session will also center the importance of skill-building for supervisors through a concrete professional development plan, based on a skills-assessment.
