How Human Rights Are Different: A Good Outcome Is...

Human Rights  Peace, justice, new awareness       and resolving unmet human needs Medical/ Psychiatry  Remission of symptoms, illness management Mental Health Therapists  Stable social & occupational functioning Trauma- Informed Care  Growing beyond survival to thriving
Each of the four paradigms values different outcomes

1. Disease model psychiatry  

The medical model is pleased with a lessening of disease or symptoms or signs that the progression illness is being well-managed.

2. Conventional 'talk' therapy

A good outcome for conventional talk therapy is the achievement of stable social and occupational functioning or other life goals relevant to treatment

3. Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma-informed care endeavors to facilitate growth beyond victimization to surviving and ultimately to thriving.

4.  Human Rights 

The human rights paradigm aspires to build communities where peace and justice prevail, human needs are met and awareness of human rights is widespread and valued by all.

That's all for now.

We will talk about the last slide next.
