Peer Support Specialists
This course has been developed with the cooperation of NC Certified Peer Support Specialists and Peer Supervisors from around the state and is underwritten by the NC Division of MHDDSAS and the Behavioral Healthcare Resource Program, School of Social Work at the University of NC, Chapel Hill.
It was in development from September of 2010 when a panel of Peer Support Specialists, Supervisors and Division representatives met with BHRP and Castle Worldwide in Chapel Hill to identify core competencies for supervisors of NC Certified Peer Support Specialists.
Purpose and Approach:
This course is designed to introduce participants to the identified supervisory competencies and to enhance their understanding of central principles of Peer Support. Participants are asked to evaluate their own systems of service and to apply course concepts to the implementation of Peer Support Services within their organizations.
The course offers 3 contact hours.
