This three-day course has been developed to address the lack of preparation that exists within organisations, families and consumers in terms of readiness to deliver, accept or practice recovery ways of working with those with mental health issues.

Though intensive we hope that by delivering the content in a relaxed and safe environment participants will find new ways to
Session 1. Preparing for Recovery
In the first session Ron and Karen will explore what we mean by recovery and the importance that Choice, Ownership, People and Self have in starting the Journey.
Session 2. You are not the Problem
The second seminar will focus on exploring why people often feel that somehow they are the problem and that they cannot recover.
Session 3. The Illness Trap
In this session Ron will Focus on the barriers that can often get in the way of a persons’ recovery exploring ways they can be overcome.
Session 4. The Importance of Story
Seminar four will both explore the importance of our stories both that of the person with the problem and the family, it will also lay out a number of ways we can tell our stories and how we might help a person move from their dominant story to an alternative story that may help them explore their problem in a very different way.
