Becoming a Radical Advocate for Self-Determination:
The revolutionary perspective within the PSR/Recovery movement
Presenter: Jenn Cusick, CPRP, Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator
Most of us get into the mental health field because we want to give back, or help. We will spend some time in this webinar looking at the radical/cutting edge shifts that have occurred in the field over the years. We will examine how as service providers, our desire to “help” sometimes gets in the way of a person’s journey towards greater self-determination. We will look at our own feelings around the need to “help”, and the desire to see a positive outcome. We will look at how we can foster environments that move people towards greater self-determination.
1. Exploration around radical advocacy through looking at some history of the recovery movement– highlighting some radical advocates.
2. We will identify what self-determination is.
3. We will examine how our worldview influences the service we provide.
4. As supporters and service providers we will examine the way we provide support, and look at some shifts that will support the people we serve towards greater self-determination.
