Workshop D: ‘focused workshop’ - Constructivist learning as a response to human distress (Putting adult education at the service of mental health recovery).
The key idea in recovery education is to exploit the transformative power of adult learning in the pursuit of personal recovery.  Educational experiences that are collaborative and dialogic have the capacity to yield real gains in terms of key personal recovery tasks such as building a life beyond illness, reappraising and framing the personal illness experience ,maximizing self agency and nurturing new and emergent social roles, such as learner, student,  peer and so on.

Research

 

Workshop G: ‘focused workshop’ - How can you include and develop PPI in your research?
This workshop will explore how to initiate, build and sustain PPI in your research. Following consideration of the evidence base we will show you how we successfully involved service users (stroke survivors, people with intellectual disability, drug users, homeless people etc.) and other stakeholder’s (e.g. healthcare professionals) in PPI research. Through practical exercises you will have the opportunity to apply your learning about PPI partnerships to your work context.
Presenters Ruth McMenamin and Edel Tierney, NUI Galway  

 

Workshop H: ‘focused workshop’ - Identifying and engaging research partners.
This workshop will provide advice and strategies for identifying and engaging community, patient, practice or policy stakeholders as research partners. Participants should come prepared with their actual research topic (or an imagined one they would hope to do). Using decision worksheets, we will work through the process of identifying the right stakeholders, and some of the barriers and facilitators to building and maintaining the partnership.
