Durham’s Institute for Medical Humanities and Hearing the Voice are delighted to announce the release of our new Royal College of Psychiatrists CPD e-Learning module on ‘Recovery Narrative in Clinical Practice’ by Åsa Jansson, Angela Woods, Akiko Hart and Chris Cook.

Recovery narrative is an individual's story of recovery from mental health problems and is an important recovery tool that can be presented to a live audience or via an audio or video recording. Recovery narratives are often used to personalise a recovery, to inspire hope, and to show that recovery can happen. 

This module will help you to develop a comprehensive understanding of what recovery narrative is, its role in clinical practice, and the potential benefits for patients. It will also familiarise you with the key debates around public recovery narratives and suggests alternative tools for when recovery narrative is not appropriate. 

 The module is free to access (registration and login required). It takes 60 minutes to complete and is worth 1 CPD credit.
