Voices, Visions and Unusual Beliefs: An Alternative View of Extreme States 1239

The medical model (approach) to extreme states; so called "psychosis",  schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and other psychiatric labels, have for much too long, dominated the mental health landscape. Now we have alternative views and ways to heal. This course is for anyone interested in finding meaning and understanding of distressing experiences. This course is relevant for all mental health professionals, emotional first responders such as clergy, teachers, school guidance counselors, nurses and folks with lived experience of the mental health system, to their families, relatives and interested others. In each session, we will view and discuss a video and talk about a revolutionary report recently out for the general public (a PDF will be distributed). We will examine your questions and discuss how these alternatives are coming to Connecticut. Dr. Blatt will donate his fee to Advocacy Unlimited. 12 CEu's are available at the completion of class.
