Clinical Recovery – Evidence based practice and skilful use of interventions – Getting rid of symptoms – Restoring social functioning – “Getting back to normal”
“…. A deeply personal, unique process of changing one’s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills &/or roles. It is a way of living a satisfying, hopeful, & contributing life even within the limitations caused by illness. Recovery involves the development of new meaning & purpose in one’s life as one grows beyond the catastrophic effects of mental illness.” (Anthony 1993)
Personal Recovery Physical, mental and spiritual journey Spontaneous and Natural Deeply Personal Can occur with or with out professional help Involves growth and setbacks, periods of rapid and little change Can occur with continuing symptoms http://youtu.be/jhK-7DkWaKE
Core concepts of Recovery Hope – Sustains motivation and supports expectations of an individually fulfilled life Sense of control – Service users taking control of their own problems, the services they receive and their lives Opportunity – Participation in a wider society. To be valued, to contribute and have access to the opportunities that exist within those communities
Recovery Vs. Rehabilitation The goal of the recovery process is not to become normal. The goal is to embrace the human vocation of becoming more deeply, more fully human. (Deegan, 1995) A person with paraplegia can recover even though the spinal cord has not. Similarly, a person with mental illness can recover even though the illness is not “cured”. (Anthony, 1993) Def: restore (someone) to health or normal life by training and therapy after imprisonment, addiction, or illness (Oxford Dictionary) The process whereby a disabled person is enabled to use their residual abilities to function effectively in as normal a social situation as possible (Bennet 1978) Recovery is what people with disabilities do. Treatment and case management and Rehabilitation are what helpers do to facilitate recovery. (Anthony, 1993)
Stages of Recovery Moratorium Denial, confusion, hopelessness, identity confusion, self-protective withdrawal Awareness The first glimmer of hope for a better life, that recovery is possible. Can emerge from within or be triggered by significant other, role model, clinician Preparation The person resolves to start recovery work, taking stock of personal resources, values, limitations Rebuilding Forging a more positive identity, setting & striving towards personal goals, reassessing old values Growth Whether or not symptom-free, can manage illness & stay well (resilience, self-confidence, optimism) Andresen R et al (2003) The experience of recovery from schizophrenia: towards an empirically-validated stage model, Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, 37, 586-94
REFOCUS: Model of Recovery Recovery-promoting Relationships –Relationship between staff and service users is central to personal Recovery –Exploring team understanding of Recovery and team values –Skill training in Coaching Working Practices 1.Understanding values and treatment preferences: Care planning is centred around person 2. Assessing strengths: Focussed on amplifying a person’s strengths and ability 3. Supporting goal- striving: Oriented around personally valued goals and that staff support active goal-striving
Recovery-promoting Relationships Valuing people for who they are – seeing beyond a diagnosis/set of symptoms “Listening” & believing in the authenticity Seeing & having confidence in their skills, abilities & potential Recognising that problems or set backs are part of the recovery process
Recovery-promoting Relationships Tipping points for successful recovery: Insights and acceptance in the person being supported Allowance of risk taking Co-development of social opportunities and knowledge Positive relationships with formal services based on good communication Carers involved in self-recovery and respite Parr H (2009) Carers and supporting recovery, Glasgow: Scottish Recovery Network.
