ONE DAY COURSE WITH LAURA DELANO ABOUT WITHDRAWAL FROM PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS IN A SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE WAY
The number of psychiatric diagnoses is increasing steadily as well as the prescription of psychiatric drugs. The knowledge about withdrawing from these drugs is, unfortunately, missing to a large extent, and so is practical information about the withdrawal process. Although we rarely hear that withdrawal from psychiatric drugs is possible, this process takes place every day throughout the world. Many former patients and professional carers have valuable experience and knowledge about key components. Tis course will provide inspiration, information and knowledge about internationally recognized withdrawal procedures through research and practice. Specific methods will be presented as well as outcomes of these and testimonies from people who live a life without either drugs or psychiatry.
The course is led by Laura Delano, former patient and now Director of Inner Compass Initiative in the United States, leader of The Withdrawal Project, an Internet-based resource for safer withdrawal, and former coordinator at MadinAmerica.
Introduction by Carina Håkansson, Head of the Family Care Foundation for more than 25 years, founder of the Extended Therapy Room and The International Institute for Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal.
When and where: June 18th from 10 AM to 4 PM at Järntorget 4 in Gothenburg. Fee: 1 200 SEK. Coffee and a light lunch are included. The number of participants is limited to 25 people.
The course is held in English.
Registration by May 20th to firstname.lastname@example.org
