“VOICES, VISIONS, AND UNUSUAL BELIEFS
AN ALTERNATIVE VIEW OF EXTREME STATES”
TUESDAY NIGHTS October 15, 2019-November 19, 2019
6:30 PM-8:30 PM
AT TOWN HALL ROOM 422
WEST HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT
The medical model (approach) to extreme states; so-called “psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder” and other psychiatric labels, has for much too long dominated the mental health landscape. Now we have alternative views and ways to heal. This course is for all mental health professionals including social workers, counselors and peer support specialists. This course is for anyone interested in finding meanings and understanding of distressing experiences and is relevant for folks with lived experience of the mental health system, to their families, relatives and interested others. In each of 6 sessions we will view and discuss a video and talk about a revolutionary report recently out for the general public (you will get a PDF). We will examine your questions and discuss how these alternatives are coming to CT.
Attendees are approved for 12 CEU’s by NASW/CT
