Prerequisite to attend this course: Must have attended 'Entering the New Paradigm – Supporting Non-Clinical Mental Health Recovery'

Assessment can be undertaken in:

CHCMHS002 –Establish self-directed recovery relationships
CHCMHS003 – Provide recovery oriented mental health services

The emergence of non-clinical, mental health recovery oriented practice in Australia has presented workers and organisations with both unprecedented potential for transformational change and challenges in making this paradigm shift in practice. Ongoing training and the implementation of newly acquired skills and knowledge is necessary to ensure that recovery-oriented practice is both authentic and consistently aligned to current best practice.

During this training you will have opportunities to further refine your skills to deliver high quality, recovery-oriented services and supports to people in a wide range of welfare agencies and programs. Using
adult-learning principles, the day will be a combination of; information giving and sharing, small and large group discussions, reflective activities, skills development sessions, short clips and interactive small-group activities.

Participants in this course will have the opportunity to:

  • Discuss and reflect on their personal values and the potential impacts of these on work practice
  • Demonstrate a sound understanding of non-clinical mental health recovery and recovery-oriented practice
  • Increase knowledge of the emergence and establishment of, and unique characteristics of recovery-oriented practice in Australia
  • Identify barriers and challenges to recovery, including stigma and discrimination, and develop useful responses to assist in responding to these
  • Develop skills in collaborative assessment, plan implementing and plan review, according to current best practice and recovery-oriented work practice
  • Reflect on practice and its role in underpinning ongoing learning, growth and effective practice
  • Assess the capacity of their organisation to work in a recovery-oriented way
  • Identify areas for improvement in organisational recovery-oriented practice and describe ways to implement these
