Training for the management team

It is best practice to ensure campus staff who will be overseeing peer supporters also receive training. Supervising peer supporters involves particularities unique to this position, and as such, clinical supervisors should ensure they are equipped to support individuals working in this role. It is also
a good idea for supervisors or managers to attend the peer support training program to gain an in-depth understanding of what is expected of peer supporters. Additionally, supervisors should receive guidance and feedback from the peer support organization about best practices in overseeing those in a peer support role.

An example of supervisor-specific peer support training program is the Centre for Innovation in Peer Support’s peer staff supervisor training.
