Moving on Tyne and Wear
Moving On Tyne and Wear (MOTW) is a programme which supports people who are out of work due to any type of health issues - physical or mental. Through 1:1 support, tailored to each individual, MOTW help people stabilise personal circumstances, develop confidence, access training and gain employment related skills.
Take part in MOTW’s workshop to find out how to develop the confidence to move forward and explore the idea of entering the working world.
This informal session aims to look into medication used to treat a number of different mental health conditions.
Medications discussed will include antidepressants, antipsychotics and mood stabilisers exploring some of the following topics; Side effects, what’s available?
Reviewing medication, new vs old - what’s the difference? Switching medication (titration), how long medication takes to work, how dangerous is it to stop without medical advice?
An Easy Guide to CBT, EMDR, & SCM
This is a one hour talk giving a brief introduction to 3 different types of therapy – cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), eye move- ment desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) and structured clinical management (SCM).
All are commonly offered to clients for a range of problems, but most of us don’t understand them all fully.
This is a part of a new programme of joint talks open to all re- covery college students, staff and CNTW staff alike. It is an intro- ductory talk on these therapies, not an interactive workshop, so you can just turn up and listen without any need to participate. But the facilitator/s will stay around from 4.30 -5pm for anyone who wants to ask any questions.
