The Recovery Model: Vision and Substance
Throughout this workshop, Dr. Ragins will discuss:
- Different conceptual models of recovery and how they apply to working with people with severe mental illnesses
- How the three core recovery transformations (from illness centered to person centered, from professionally-driven to client-driven collaboration, and from deficit-based to strengths-based building resilience) impact how we see our clients and our treatment plans
- Break down the process of recovery into three stages that people go through as they move from a river of suffering to reintegration into the community (engagement, rebuilding, and arriving), along three dimensions (personal, relationships, and roles)
- How to track people’s progress in recovery and use specifically targeted person-centered interventions to promote their recovery
- How recovery-based programs and a comprehensive recovery-based system of care can be developed.
