We are seeking social workers who:
|About||Recovery-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.
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.
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.
