About the event

Utilising an international model, this day shows the alternatives to pharmolocology and within child, deficit driven diagnosis, as well as looking at the current culture of western medicine to cure and treat distress and trauma with pills and prescriptions. 

Day 2 builds on from day 1. You will learn the power of language and learn to be a more critical and careful language user. You will develop an understanding that language is a transformative tool that can subjugate and oppress, as well as empower and liberate.

We focus on the narratives of mental illness and ask you to critically reflect on how power is operationalised and imposed over children and young people through both words and actions in an educational context. We also examine the exponential increase in psychiatric diagnosis of disorders in children and young people and explore alternatives to prescription pharmaceuticals.
