This session explores three critical questions related to the supervision of Peer Specialists/Advocates. With a growing focus on peer supervision across the country, there are national efforts to understand and align supervision with peer support values. These strategies are critical to the success of the peer support workforce, whether at a peer-run organization or on an integrated, multi-disciplinary team in a traditional service setting. A national well-informed research perspective suggests answers to three compelling questions as added dimensions for success. This session focuses on providing a perspective on successful supervision and dispels some of the myths surrounding this practice.
