Event Details



 KEYNOTE SPEAKER, DAN FISHER, M.D., Ph.D.

Executive Director of the National Empowerment Center & practicing psychiatrist


"People are Often More Important Than Pills"

Dan will describe his own process of recovery of life, and his understanding that recovery is not recovery from an illness in the medical sense, but is recovery of meaning and purpose in his life. He has found the value of a trauma informed approach, and has found that an over emphasis on medication alone reduces the humanity of both the clinician and the person with lived experience. He has found emotional CPR and dialogical approaches such as Recovery Dialogues and Open Dialogue valuable in developing meaningful, emotionally connected relationships which are the basis of enriching one's life at all levels.
