This 3-part webinar series shares the experience and insights from a real program transformation, that led to a new approach to client-centeredness.
Many professionals (certainly including social workers) already understand and deliver client-centered care/treatment/therapy. But what about the systems in which that care is provided? Are they designed in the clients’ interest, or are they more tailored to budgets, politics, administration, efficiency, etc.?
In his book (It’s Not About Us), and in this webinar, Todd Leader describes how we can shift the power, reduce stigma, reduce oppression and improve empowerment of those with mental illness or addictions, improve access, and improve the health of our population, just by creating a client-centered ‘system’.
