Trauma Informed Peer Supervision Training with Leah Harris

December 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Trauma Informed Peer Supervision

The purpose of this training is to help participating organizations effectively integrate, implement, and sustain peer supports and recovery coach workers using a trauma-informed approach as part of a broader effort to become a trauma-informed organization, with a focus on best practices in supervision of persons in peer and recovery coach roles.

This one-day, interactive training for supervisors of peer supports and recovery coach workers will include:

  • Review of peer specialist and recovery coach roles and core competencies
  • Myths and misconceptions about the peer and recovery coach workforce
  • Characteristics of trauma-informed supervision
  • Co-reflection – what is it and how to practice it
  • Special considerations when supervising persons in peer and recovery coach roles

 At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify what does and does not fall within the peer and recovery coach role
  2. Name key myths and misconceptions about the peer and recovery coach workforce
  3. Describe what “trauma-informed” supervision looks like
  4. Define “co-reflection” and how it differs from traditional supervision
  5. Discuss special considerations when supervising persons in peer and recovery coach roles.
