Supervising Peer Support Specialists

North Dakota is committed to expanding the access of Peer Support Specialists as an option for individuals seeking recovery and for families supporting individuals. There are challenges associated with incorporating new positions into existing teams and supervision is a critical piece of this. According to SAMHSA supervision is a professional and collaborative activity between a supervisor and a worker in which the supervisor provides guidance and support to the worker to promote competent and ethical delivery of services and supports through the continuing development of the worker’s application of accepted professional peer work knowledge, skills, and values. 

This pre-recorded training will work to answer the following three questions: 

  1. Why has clinical supervision of peer specialists become a difficult supervisory relationship?
  2. How does this non-peer supervisory relationship impact the effectiveness of peer specialist providers of peer support?
  3. What have we learned about making the clinical supervision of peer specialists as effective as possible?

This webinar is approved for 3 continuing education hours for ND Certified Peer Support Specialist I and II. All other licenses should submit this certificate and any other requested documentation to the appropriate licensing board for approval of continuing education units.  

At the end of this webinar training, a link will be provided to a Microsoft forms survey. Upon completion of this survey, you will be emailed a certificate of attendance.
