From National Empowerment Center:
Person-centered planning requires a system-wide shift in communication, as well as adaptation of recovery-oriented, trauma-informed values. This webinar will provide administrators, managers, and providers of mental health services with essential communication tools needed to transform their systems to being recovery-based and empowerment focused. Presenters will share about the components of Emotional CPR (eCPR), a public health education program developed by people with lived experience of mental health recovery.
An understanding of eCPR skills and values can help stakeholders to develop and implement recovery supports for people who receive mental health services. eCPR skills can also be used to more effectively collaborate with service recipients and other stakeholders. Decision-makers will learn to embody the dialogical approach needed to transform behavioral healthcare systems from maintenance to recovery. Presenters will share how eCPR has impacted and improved community mental health systems.
