Recovery Competencies for New Zealand Mental Health Workers.
This book contains a detailed report of the recovery principles set out in the Mental Health Commission's Blueprint for Mental Health Services in New Zealand. The competencies, endorsed by the New Zealand government, describe what mental health workers need to know about using the recovery approach in their work with people with mental illness. The information provides educators with guidance on the inclusion of recovery content in the courses they run for mental health workers. It presents the philosophical foundation of the recovery approach followed by a description of how the competencies were developed. The major categories of the recovery competencies are explained in Section A; Section B provides examples of the categories and subcategories; and Section C presents resources for each sub-category. Several web sites are listed for additional information. (Contains 207 references.) (JDM)
