Whether you are a Clinical Supervisor who is used to supervising clinicians or a senior Certified Peer Support Specialist (CPSS) who is new to the whole concept of "supervision," the role that CPSS play does not fit into the way treatment has been provided for the past 50 years. This didactic and experiential training will provide individuals who supervise CPSS with an understanding of the role CPSS are supposed to play within the recovery process and how to best utilize their skill set. Participants will also become familiar with the specific supervision needs of CPSS and how best to meet those needs.
- Increased understanding of the role CPSS play in the recovery process
- Increased understanding of how supervising CPSS differs from supervising clinicians
- Increased understanding of the concept of "Recovery Capital" and how it pertains to CPSS
- Understanding of how to develop a supervision plan for CPSS
