Healing Forward Conference 21-22nd June 2016
This conference aims to build on current practice in supporting people living with mental health challenges in order to achieve their recovery goals.
The two days will focus on trauma informed and person centred approaches to recovery for community members who live with mental health challenges and their families. It will bring together professionals to showcase their recovery orientated practices while supporting a trauma informed approach to service delivery.
It is vital that we evolve our knowledge and ways of working based on a sound understanding of the growing and changing complexities facing our clients. We need to face the challenge of providing flexible and responsive services that create pathways for recovery and well-being.
Keynote Speaker: Phil Hilder
Keynote: Having a holistic framework for recovery oriented work is an absolute must but even with such a framework there remains consistent pressure to keep to parts of the old power paradigm of treatment and care. This key note address will highlight the recovery-oriented direction of Mental Health treatment and care along with the challenges that workers at all levels will face in the consistent application of recovery-oriented principles and practices.
Philip’s work at Sydney Integrative Psychology covers many roles: psychologist, psychotherapist, counsellor, clinical supervisor, educator and trainer.
