About This Workshop:

This webinar will consider the ways in which the needs of people with severe and enduring needs can be supported through the creation of recovery/discovery spaces and through their community of peers, family and workers.

The focus of the Trieste Recovery House is to create a space of self-determination, shared responsibility and ownership including family members.

We will discuss the establishment of the recovery house and community in Trieste that has been running for over five years and supported over 60 people and their families.

We will also discuss the role of the Recovery Community that supported the work of the Recovery House by creating a democratic and reflective space based on the principles of ‘nothing about us without us’.

Examples of successful implementation

Who should attend?

Managers, professionals, service users, family members, Community Organisations.

Organisations considering the need to change their rehabilitation and residential care services toward more dynamic and therapeutic approach to improve the lives of people using their whole community.
