The Recovery Academy
RDO2015 WELCOMES THE RECOVERY ACADEMY AS A COMMUNITY PARTNER
The philosophy of the academy is to deliver an educational rather than a therapeutic approach; not treating you but teaching you. Where a therapeutic approach can be based on problems and deficits, in education we focus on strengths, talents and resources. In the academy we will work with you to explore possibilities and develop your skills in order to achieve your goals and ambitions. Our facilitators will act as coaches and mentors, recognizing that participants can learn to find their own solutions to difficulties and that this is enhanced by the sharing of professional and lived experience of mental health and addiction services.
Our commitment to education is evident in the language we use and the way that the courses are delivered.
A fundamental principle of the academy is that the courses are co-developed and attended and the majority are co-delivered. We believe that this mixture of expertise enhances the facilitators and participants experiences, knowledge and skills through learning together.
