Reciprocal Supervision: How Peer Specialists and Their Supervisors Can Work Together for Lasting Recovery

M. C. Violet Taylor

Abstract

Reciprocal Supervision is a term I coined to describe the egalitarian relationship I have with my supervisor. She is the Assistant Chief Nursing Executive in a locked mental health institute and I am a Regional Peer Bridger—the consumer on staff. We work in an acute care setting, where the spectrum of mental health issues, cultures, languages, abilities, and lifestyles is as varied among consumers as it is among coworkers. Our State has not been as progressive as it has been diverse. Peer Support Specialists are still a rarity, and we are the signal of changes to come.
