Discover and Recover

Boston University: Recovery Model Through ‘Innovations Institute’

The conventional psychiatric model of “mental illnesses” as
incurable biological disorders requiring lifetime medical management is
making a paradigmatic shift - away from hopelessness, and toward recovery.

This new model is built on the foundation of peer
support, and consumer-based advocacy, with a focus on system
transformation. It is no small change; its time has come.

In April of this year, Boston University’s Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation held a unique conference - From Innovations to Practice: The Promise and Challenge of Achieving Recovery for All.

The Innovations Institute of Boston University, is now offering a series of online video courses based on the recordings of the top presenters from the conference.

There are 14 courses - convenient and affordable. They can
be taken anywhere there is Internet access - to include home or office
- day or night. Most cost only $10 or $15!

They are open to people of all levels and backgrounds.
Continuing education credits are offered through a variety of
accrediting organizations - APA, ASWB, NBCC, and many others.
