Workshop

Recovery and Diversity: Approaches to cultural assessment & supporting personal recovery

Details

This workshop uses a diversity lens to explore contemporary approaches to recovery-oriented practice in mental health settings.

Participants in this workshop will explore:

  • Working with individuals and families in their social and cultural context
  • Integrating social and cultural concerns into personal assessments and recovery plans
  • Using aspects of cultural assessment as presented in DSM-5
  • Ensuring the cultural safety of consumers, families and carers when supporting personal recovery

This workshop builds on information delivered in introductory-level training offered by Victorian Transcultural Mental Health (VTMH).

It is asked that learners have engaged in an introductory-level workshop with VTMH within the last 3 years, or alternatively view the free online training module, Orientation to Cultural Responsiveness, available via the VTMH website at http://www.vtmh.org.au/training/conversations-in-cultural-responsiveness-an-online-introductory-tool prior to attending this workshop.
