About this event:
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).Attendance: Free Ordinary Membership rate for nurses in 2014 available now: €30.00 per annum Associate membership for non-nurses: €10.00 Student membership: free To become an IIMHN member now click here!
