About the course
The course begins with an outreach day with a focus on what a recovery-oriented approach entails and addresses an insider's perspective on mental illness, personal recovery and the importance of the relationship. The day is adapted to the needs of the activities and the participants' prior knowledge and can to varying degrees also deal with: nursing as a process, mental disabilities, psychiatric illnesses, legislation, ethics.
You will learn:
- The basics of a recovery-oriented approach.
- A structure for joint reflection
Supervision takes place in reflection groups of a maximum of 9 participants.
Each group meets on 6-12 occasions.
The meetings follow a special structure developed at Ltu, and focus on challenging and developing staff's understanding of problem-creating situations and behaviors, as well as identifying measures and approaches that promote recovery.
