‘Recovery’: Embracing the Challenges – Approach for Psychiatry? LIMERICK
The application of a recovery approach to mental illness has been described as modern day psychiatry and as the new medical approach for psychiatry. However, with confusion about what recovery means and uncertainty about the interpretation of the evidence it has been challenging for psychiatrists to adapt their practice in meaningful ways.
This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of the topic and an opportunity to shape the College’s policy position.
The programme with selected speakers from the profession and lived experience is designed to provide psychiatrists with the opportunity to have an open discussion on this important area and to identify the challenges and solutions in developing more recovery orientated practice for the profession in Ireland into the future.
