Event Details

A psychiatric advance directive (PAD), also known as a mental health advance directive, is a written document that describes what a person wants to happen if she or he is incapacitated during an acute episode of psychiatric illness. In this workshop, you’ll learn how and why psychiatric advance directives are valuable therapeutic tools. You’ll learn about co-creating a PAD with a client, using the process to encourage self-direction. The session also covers the legal limitations of PADS, including hospitals’ obligation to treat patients according to appropriate standards of care and practice.
