Psychosocial assessment and recovery orientated care


Psychosocial assessment and recovery orientated care

This module aims to enable health and social care professionals to develop a critically analytic understanding of recovery orientated principles and to develop skills to incorporate the concept into mental health care delivery.

It is designed to critically analyse the concept of recovery from the perspective of service users, carers, family members, clinical practitioners and the wider multi-disciplinary team. It is designed to develop the knowledge, attitudes, skills and expertise required that will enable practitioners to work collaboratively with service users and colleagues, promoting empowerment and client autonomy.

Learning outcomes:

  1. Critical appraisal of the evidence and the values based around recovery principles.
  2. Critically analyse the concept of meaningful collaborative relationships and skills required to apply this to practice.
  3. Critically analyse the ethical implications of recovery orientated practice and the ability to work flexibly with others to formulate solutions.
  4. Critically analyse key social policy influences and wider understanding of the concept of social inclusion.
  5. Critically appraise the integration of learning with practice.


Who is the module for? Practitioners must be working within a mental health setting.
