This 2-part training workshop will be an interactive training experience with space for questions and discussion. The trainers, Jan Bostock and Ray Middleton are experienced mental health professionals from National Health and third sector backgrounds and are also part of the UK British Psychological Society committee that oversees the dissemination of the Power Threat Meaning Framework (PTMF). They shall be explaining and exploring this non-pathologizing, strengths-based alternative to diagnosis for understanding how people may experience mental health issues. The session will include considerations of how power operates in people’s lives both positively and negatively, how threats to core needs and rights may be relevant to understanding distress, and how people may respond to these threats and make sense of what is happening to them.
