PCA understands that peer professionals do better in a work situation with appropriate supervision. There are at least 2 types of supervisors that we focus on with 2 different Peer Supervisor trainings- "Coachervision" - and "Effective Peer Supervision".
1) CCAR's "Coachervision" is for peer to peer supervision and explores supporting a newer coach's growth.
• Define expectations of Recovery Coach oversight
• Understand the complexity and intricacy of the Recovery Coach role
• Understand how organizational culture can support a Coachervision model
• Learn the importance of accountability for both the Coachervisor and Recovery Coach
• How to support Recovery Coaches in professional settings
2) "Effective Peer Supervision" is an experiential training which provides insight into how best to integrate a peer into your team and how to include "removing barriers and promoting recovery" into the workplace on a daily basis. Designed for the existing supervisor who is adding peer coaches to the team for the first time,"Effective Peer Supervision" includes 6-9 months follow up and an online learning collaborative to promote peer integration and learning for the supervisor.
As Recovery Coaching is a peer-based service, there hasn't been a need for documentation - and without documentation, there isn't data to report. However, as more and more organizations have begun utilizing coaches to provide support services for those in recovery from alcohol and other addictions, we are finding more and more articles written to show support of this model.
