Infusing Mental Health Recovery in Practice and Field Education
The third installment of the Recovery to Practice series, this interactive, on-demand course focuses on ways recovery could be mobilized in your personal practice, your agency, and field instruction. Participants will explore characteristics common to recovery-oriented agencies, learn how individual change, organizational transformation, and cultural humility can be used to promote progress toward recovery-orientation, and discover some tangible steps to instill recovery in field instruction settings.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- describe a model recovery-oriented agency;
- recognize the value of cultural humility in recovery-oriented social work practice;
- describe two cultural humility skills that could be put into practice;
- identify at least two potential exercises to use with students in the field; and
- list one potential example of a student assessment measure.
