National Practice Guidelines for Peer Specialists and Supervisors

The first course in this series, National Practice Guidelines for Peer Specialists and Supervisors, provides a brief background of peer support services; familiarizes attendees with development of National Practice Guidelines for Peer Specialists and Supervisors; demonstrates actionable steps for operationalizing these guidelines; and shares key findings from research on supervision of peer specialists by non-peer supervisors.

The second course, Supervision as collaboration: Revisiting the National Practice Guidelines and using the Five Critical Functions to enhance peer support practice, demonstrates the concept of collaborative supervision to further operationalize the National Practice Guidelines for Peer Specialists and Supervisors, as well as introduces the Five Critical Functions of Supervision to bridge the gap that often stifles communication between the peer specialist’s role and tasks and supervisor’s understanding of these roles and tasks.

Edwards, PhD, LCSW, ACSW, NYCPS, National Association of Peer Supporters; Joanne Forbes, PhD, CPRP, Baltic Street AEH; Rita Cronise, MS, ALWF, Rutgers University Department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation, Academy of Peer Services; and Gita Enders, LMSW, MA, CPRP, NYCPS, director, NYC Health + Hospitals, Office of Behavioral Health.
