Recovery oriented practice is both a political movement and a potential paradigm shift in the focus of how we work with people to build meaningful and worthwhile lives in the face of emotional and psychological distress.
This module introduces recovery and the steps that are needed by practitioners and organisations alike to adopt a recovery oriented approach to practice. Workshops on recovery-oriented assessment, care-planning, goal-setting, safety management and coaching approaches are informed by the latest evidence-based models and research.
This module will prepare you for the transition into recover-oriented practice. You will be able to think critically and reflexively about the use of recovery-oriented practice and how it fits in the organisational context. You will develop solution-focused cognitive-behavioural coaching skills to integrate into your practice.
The module is informed by cutting edge recovery-oriented research from practitioners previously involved in the recovery research of International quality.

What you will study
This module is provided as part of this interdisciplinary Framework within the Faculty of Health Studies. The Framework enables students to create an individualised programme of study that will meet either their needs and/or the employers’ needs for a changing diverse workforce within a modern organisation.
The modules and academic awards are presented in areas representing employment practice or work based or clinical disciplines.
Whilst some students can build their own academic awards by choosing their own menu of module options, other students will opt for a named academic award. The Framework also provides the option for students to move from their chosen named award to another award if their job or personal circumstances change and they need to alter the focus of their studies. The majority of named awards also offer students, the option of choosing at least one module, sometimes more, from across the Faculty module catalogue enabling them to shape their award more specifically to their needs.
Learning and assessment
This module is assessed using a combination of critically reflexive essay, a presentation on the application of recovery in practice and a clinical skills inventory.
