Relationship-First Approach to Extreme States

May 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

In this interactive workshop, participants will gain insight into and practice an approach that centers personal connection, empathy, and mutuality when supporting people who experience extreme or unusual states and/or have extraordinary beliefs. Participants will explore ways to negotiate boundaries and disparate needs while maintaining values of choice, transparency, equality, community, and possibility. Topics include navigating fear and discomfort, avoiding/minimizing control and coercion, and navigating multiple truths when supporting people having experiences that might be labeled as psychosis.

This training will be held virtually via zoom. We recommend that folks join via laptop, desktop, or tablet as smart phones are harder to navigate for this kind of interactive training.

This training is for folks who live and/or work in Vermont. This training is free of charge to participants and sponsored by Vermont’s Peer Workforce Development Initiative.
