HIV-positive peers who work to retain PLWHA in care and treatment and who may have experienced life challenges similar to those of their clients have unique needs for supervision and support. Effective peer supervision calls for supervisors to develop a highly supportive supervisory style that borrows from mental health counseling, social work and supervision.

This is the second of a two-part webinar (see Part 1) discussing supportive and clinical approaches for supervising peers in the workplace. Case examples will be discussed addressing issues such as managing peer-client relationships and transference/counter-transference. Participants are encouraged to bring case examples from their own organizational settings.

The session includes speakers from three organizations with extensive experience in supervising peers.
