Holding the Hope In Healthcare explores what happens to our recovery journey when we move into the primary medical care setting. How do we incorporate the SAMHSA Essential Components and Guiding Principles of Recovery into our work in primary health care settings? Participants review the Components and Guiding Principles of Recovery so they can support and increase a medical professional’s belief in their patient’s ability to recover. This workshop shows participants how to convey hope and inspire recovery and to advocate for andsupport primary care providers to do the same, without compromising best practices primary care standards.
Additionally, participants identify personal attitudes and beliefs they hold that may be barriers to recovery for the peers they support or other people they may encounter. We will also explore how we have the skills we need, as movement and as peer support workers, to recognize and work to change medical beliefs and/or practices dictated by long held cultural beliefs, funding structures or billing requirements that may create unintentional barriers to recovery. We’ve done this before, we can do this again. Once the beliefs and attitudes are identified, we can work together to find solutions.
Participants will leave this webinar with:
- Improved non-verbal communication skills for sending messages of hope, respect and recovery;
- A new or renewed understanding of the SAMHSA 10 Components of Recovery and Guiding Principles of recovery;
- Specific skills for overcoming internal and external barriers to speaking out and reframing medical practices and integrated care policies through the lens of recovery;
- A strengthened personal commitment to support recovery practices and policies in the health care settings around them;
- Strategies for implementing change in the workplace.
