  Are the supervisory needs in a peer-based recovery support service any different than in any other service, and how? What needs to be considered in developing the supervisor’s role as well as the certified recovery support worker’s role?  As peer support services become more prevalent in substance use disorder recovery and mental health services, it is important to address these questions as peer roles can present unique challenges to existing supervision structures and processes.  This one day training is designed for individuals who are responsible for supervising Certified Recovery Support Workers (CRSW) or those working towards certification. The training will assist the supervisors in identifying and directing the skills, knowledge and abilities of their CRSW staff as well as supporting them in their roles.

The goals of the training are:

  1. Identifying the tasks related to the knowledge, skill and ability of the CRSW in the four performance domains of: Advocacy, Mentoring/Education, Recovery/Wellness Support and Ethical Responsibility
  2. Identifying the differences and similarities of supervising certified recovery support workers, from that of clinical supervision with clinical staff.

As a result of this training participants will:

  • Understand the knowledge, skills and abilities of the CRSW position and its supervision;
  • Explore fundamental activities of supervision;
  • Identify and understand values and their importance in the supervision process; and
  • Define what culturally competent ethical supervision is.
