This two-hour workshop will focus on The Power Threat Meaning Framework, which from a Division of Clinical Psychology funded project aimed at developing a conceptual approach that moves away from the diagnostic model that situates the ‘illness’ entirely within the person (body and brain) and ignores social and cultural contributing factors. The framework advocates for a change of language from ‘what is wrong with you?’ to ‘what has happened to you?’.
This workshop is suitable for anyone working in health, social care and education settings, and will explore:
- The development of the framework – context and theory
- The use of the framework in clinical practice – case study and group discussion
- Critique of the framework – from clinicians and clients.
The workshop will be delivered by Dr Kat Damazer, Clinical Psychologist, and will run from 3.00pm-5.00pm.
