What is Family Peer Support: Family Peer Support (FPS) is a peer-to-peer approach to supporting families caring for children, youth, and young adults with behavioral, mental, emotional, or co-occurring challenges. FPS is provided by a parent or caregiver with lived experience who is trained to assist other families by providing support, identifying resources, and facilitating access to services for the child and family.
Description: Supervision is a key component in the success of Family Peer Support. Effective supervision employs an approach that promotes the unique lived experience of the Family Peer Support Provider and encourages ongoing professional growth. This curriculum is part of the larger Family Peer Support Practice Model and addresses supervisory skills that will enhance your ability to fully support the work of the FPS. Training will include strategies, best practices and tools for your use in supervision, and you will have opportunities to problem solve around shared challenges and network with supervisors from other programs.
