ABOUT THE WEEK
Karen Taylor and Ron Coleman have a nineteen-year track record of working together and providing innovative and Custom built training with and for agencies that wish to develop and implement recovery processes and practices within the statutory, voluntary and private sectors both in the UK and abroad. Their knowledge base comes from a combination of lived experience, professional education and continual practice. They are confident in working with people who have a lived experience, workers and family members and believe passionately in dialogue between these groups. Their main expertise is in developing recovery practice and recovery planning training within the areas of ‘Psychosis’ and “Borderline Personality Disorder”, but would re-iterate that practices they explore are relevant across the spectrum of “disorders” or emotional distress. The week will be a blend of experiential learning, group discussions, film, evidence, debate, reflection and journaling.
During Day 1 we will explore the evidence base for the effectiveness of recovery programs in psychosis. This will include “Preparing for Recovery”, “ You are not the Problem” and “Beyond The Illness Trap”.
The main focus of Day 2 will be working with difficult to engage narratives. During this day we will explore the importance of narratives and developing narrative connections. This involves understanding the process of Scaffolding as a method of supporting the person and of rich story development in helping the person make sense of the narrative.
Day 3 is centered in working with voices and other extreme states. This day will explore the use of a number of tools to help participants engage better and more effectively with “Psychosis”. This will include use of voice dialogue, sculpting, externalization, re-membering, developing formulations and developing coping strategies.
Day 4 will focus on developing resilience and working with families as partners and major stakeholders in the recovery process. This will include the use of compassionate meditative and spiritual approaches to resilience. We will also spend time trying out the various techniques learnt during the week.
Day 5 will be spent consolidating the learning of the week. This will involve a question & answer session and tying up any lose ends from the week. We will also explore the “Where to from Here?” - that is always asked at the end of the week.
