Monday, April 15, 2013 * 7:30 PM
Queen City Room A (lower level)
Recovery from a mental illness requires that an individual and their family address many challenges and acquire additional skills. These challenges and skills will very frequently involve confronting one’s fears and pushing oneself into situations that hold both hope and uncertainty. One of the most vital, and yet overlooked skills to keep fears and the power of the unknown from slowing down an individual’s recovery is the ability to build and sustain courage. This presentation will introduce and highlight the various factors that have been shown by research and clinical practice to be crucial to the development and maintenance of courage. The presenter will discuss how to apply these principles practically into the process of recovery from a mental illness.
