In this webinar Robert E. Drake will present on Recovery and Evidence: A New Paradigm. Major topics will include the history of community mental health, recovery-oriented practices, evidence-based practices and system change. He will address the importance of people with mental health challenges in defining recovery and contrast this with the way professionals, researchers and others have defined it.

He will then describe how evidence-based practices are determined along with examples of key practices. Finally, he will address some of the misconception surrounding evidence-based practices and ways to respond to objections and also take advantage of opportunities to increase their adoption.
