Applying Recovery-Oriented, Strengths-Based Principles to Clinical Practice: From Individual Psychotherapeutic Intervention to Community-Based Supports

Monday, November 14, 10:30am - 12:30pm PST

This workshop will provide an overview of empirically-supported, recovery- oriented interventions for individuals with serious mental illness (SMI). Workshop participants will be introduced to evidence-based psychotherapeutic interventions for SMI, as well as community-based interventions aimed to address needs for housing, employment, and/or peer support. This workshop will also provide tools to support clinicians in adopting a recovery- oriented and strengths-based stance to clinical documentation, treatment planning, and care coordination. With principles such as person-centered care and shared-decision making at the heart of recovery-oriented interventions, attendees may benefit from the workshop even if they do not serve SMI populations.

Lift Every Voice: A Community Workshop featuring A Home Within clients

Monday, November 7th

2pm - 3pm PDT

Gain a new perspective on volunteering with A Home Within by hearing from current and former clients and volunteers! The goal of this event is to expanding our program narratives to "lift up" the voices of the client experience while informing prospective volunteers about A Home Within.



The A Home Within At Home Series presents online programming responding to the evolving needs of current and former foster youth as well as the community of practitioners committed to serving them. Each workshop explores the experiences of foster youth in four contexts:

  • as individuals
  • in relationship with a therapist
  • in their families of origin and choice
  • in the broader systems with which they interact

Every workshop addresses these topics in the context of the pandemic, national reckoning with racism and injustice, and technology-enabled modalities.
