Meanings of Recovery
This Two-Day Symposium (11-12 July 2016) will bring together academics and postgraduate research students who have theoretical and empirical interest in recovery in the context of mental health, physical illness or injury and addiction. Despite prima facie cross-over there has been little dialogue about recovery between these domains and the conceptual models of recovery they are building do not necessarily speak to each other.
We will be displaying posters throughout the day. If you would like to offer a poster presentation please send an abstract (of no more than 300 words) to email@example.com Deadline for receipt of abstracts is May 13th 2016.
Ten travel bursaries (£50 per bursary) will be offered for postgraduate research students who are attending both days of the symposium and presenting a poster. These will be allocated on a competitive basis based on the scoring of abstracts by the committee. A prize will also be awarded for the best poster (£50 book token). Please note that bursaries will need to be paid after the event.
Confirmed speakers and workshop facilitators include Professor Diana Rose, Dr Emma Wincup, Dr Iain Wilkinson, Dr Jim Roe, Professor Graham Scambler and Dr Paul Stoneman. Dr Lynne Friedli will give a public lecture on the 11th July.
There is a small cost to attend. Further details and online Booking can be found here
