The role of peers within systems can be a complex one, and that brings with it some challenges. Peer integration has expanded exponentially in the last 10 years and systems have had difficulty keeping up with the demands. There is still a great amount of misunderstanding and misconceptions regarding peer roles by those who employ them. Nonetheless, organizations have the fiduciary responsibility of supporting the peer recovery workforce, and peer supervision is an indispensable component to the success of peers in their professional roles. This training will explore the bi-directional relationship between peers and peer supervisors. Participants will have the opportunity to explore what the peer role looks like within the environments they engage in. Further, they’ll discuss what they may seek from the supervisory relationship as well as what they bring to the relationship, in order to best fulfill their professional potential.
Educational Goal

The educational goal of this workshop is to increase knowledge about peer roles and peer supervision.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify at least three of the challenges of their roles within the specific environments they practice in.
