In this course we explore people’s recovery journeys and what helps us get through difficulties. We offer the opportunity to look at recovery from different perspectives, from our own sense of identity, and to develop self-awareness of how we describe ourselves to other people. We use a range of creative methods to explore recovery, and assess what is working well in our lives. Approaches will be offered for future goal planning and building resilience.
