Participants sought

We are seeking social workers who:

  • have worked with children, young people, and their caregivers for six months or more.
  • are practising in a child and youth mental health delivery setting (public or private organisation, hospital, community practice setting etc) anywhere in Australia.
  • have direct practice contact with services users.
  • are eligible for AASW membership.
AboutRecovery-oriented practice has been recognised as the cornerstone of innovative and client-centered mental health service provision. Yet, little is known about how social workers enact recovery approaches when working with children and their family members in a child and youth mental health context. The study aims to increase our understanding of how recovery approaches in a child and youth mental health context are conceptualised by social workers and how they navigate competing clinical models to enact recovery-oriented practice in child and youth mental health.
What is involved

The project has two stages. We will work in partnership with the social workers to co-create knowledge in this area.

Session One:

We will provide a 90-minute workshop about recovery-oriented practice with children and their families. We will then offer a 90-minute consultation forum with social workers to explore how they translate recovery in their own practice in a child and youth setting.

Session Two:

We will consult social workers about a draft recovery-oriented practice framework developed from Stage 1 findings.

Participants are welcome to participate in one or both sessions.

Participation is completely voluntary, and participants can withdraw at any time.
