Drop the disorder! – challenging of the culture of psychiatric diagnosis and the pathologising of emotional distress.

In this online workshop (also delivered on 21st September and 21st November 22) Jo Watson presents the arguments against psychiatric diagnosis and offers an opportunity for participants to explore the impact of the medical model narrative on ourselves and those we support and asks what we can do to inform change.

This is based on training that Jo has delivered to many groups and organisations around the world over the last few years and is suitable for those who are new to the debate that challenges medical model thinking.

2.5 hours – CPD Certificate available.

Tickets available here

MITUK’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for fundamentally re-thinking theory and practice in the field of mental health in the UK, and promoting positive change. We believe that the current diagnostically-based paradigm of care has comprehensively failed, and that the future lies in non-medical alternatives which explicitly acknowledge the causal role of social and relational conflicts, abuses, adversities and injustices.
