Best Practices for Recruiting, Retaining, and Supervising Peer Support Workers
July 29, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am
Many peer support workers leave agencies due to a lack of support and misunderstandings about the unique value of peer support. This presentation will address developing effective supervision, as well as creating and nurturing an organizational culture that respects and effectively employs peers in a variety of roles. Topics will include the importance of establishing clear policies, encouraging respect, changing organizational culture, and providing peer supervisory support that promotes the health and well-being of the organization and individuals.
