The Training and Consultation Division has worked with programs and government agencies throughout the world. Below is a selection of past projects with a brief description of the services provided.
Training and Development in Psychiatric Rehabilitation
The focus of the project was to increase the competence in rehabilitation within Malmö and to increase the ability of organizations to use the competence to deliver psychiatric rehabilitation services.
Onsite training sessions occurred in Malmö. Seven staff across Vocational Rehabilitation, Social Services and Psychiatry were trained as trainers, and three staff were trained as program consultants.
Ongoing remote collaboration existed between Malmö psychiatric rehabilitation practitioners and Boston University consultants through an online discussion group.
As a result, consumers and practitioners stated they felt more hopeful and positive about what is possible to achieve.
