A Public Lecture. Recovery: The ‘sacred cow’ of modern mental health care.
The Irish Institute of Mental Health Nursing in conjunction with the School of Nursing and Midwifery, UCC, invite you to a public lecture by Dr Alastair Morgan entitled: Recovery: The ‘sacred cow’ of modern mental health care.
In this talk Alastair will argue that the concept of ‘recovery’ currently functions as an ideology in mental health care, and enables mental health services to market themselves as ‘holistic’ and ‘user focused’ whilst maintaining a biomedical and coercive approach to care.
Alastair Morgan is a Senior Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University, England. He is the author of Adorno’s Concept of Life ( 2007, London and New York: Continuum) and the editor of Being Human: Reflections on Mental Distress in Society (2008, PCCS Books).
Symposium V: ‘Recovery and clinical risk management: An oxymoron’
The fifth Symposium of the Irish Institute of Mental Health Nursing will take place on Thursday 10th April 2014 in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin.
The theme for the symposium will be ‘Recovery and clinical risk management: An oxymoron’. The Symposium will also feature a debate on the motion that ‘the house believes that recovery and clinical risk management are irreconcilable’. The programme expects to feature an interactive workshop in the afternoon.
