Applicants must have experience of or be currently working in the mental health area.
This second semester paper will be offered to appropriately qualified clinicians working in a mental health area and who have an interest in translating principles of recovery into their practice.
The aim of this paper is to focus attention upon self-management as a practical application of recovery principles and practitioners’ ability to facilitate self-management beliefs and abilities in those who receive mental health care.
The paper will provide an opportunity to explore and critique a range of ideas and concepts that influence contemporary mental health care. A working knowledge of the DSM in clinical practice or completion of PSMX401 Nature, Extent and Assessment of Mental Disorders will provide a useful foundation to this paper.
Four two-day workshops in Christchurch. Attendance at block days is compulsory.
