Beyond the Medical Model

Join us on Zoom on May 16, 2022, 2:00 – 4:00 PM

(Link to register below)

The CPCS Mental Health Training Unit is hosting a collaborative and interactive conversation with Cindy Marty Hadge and Jennifer Tirado from Wildflower Alliance to help you understand the medical model of disability and client-centered alternatives so you can better represent your clients with mental health issues. This program will enable you to:

  • Recognize common perceptions of people with disabilities and examine your own perceptions and biases.
  • Describe and evaluate the medical model of disability contrasted with the social model of disability, including the neurodiversity paradigm of psychosocial disabilities.
  • Apply your understanding of various models of disability to the work of defending the autonomy and personal freedoms of our clients.
