Members of PeerTAC and its partner organizations describe and demonstrate resources that support the supervision of certified peer specialists, family peer advocates, and youth peer advocates. As an emerging profession, peer support brings a new and diverse set of skills, values, and perspectives to already existing behavioral health teams. This session is an opportunity for participants to access resources that can be used to gain greater knowledge and practical skills in peer-informed supervision.
