How do workplace succeed at accommodating the needs of employee with mental health problems.
The types of accommodation provided for people with mental illness, their cost and benefit.
Students will choose a theoretical orientation (Foucault’s work, sanism, post-psychiatry,
or Consumer/Survivor Lived/Subjugated Knowledge or for those who are interested in alternative approaches to medical approaches to support can use Tamasin Knight’s work) and use this lens to examine a contemporary practice issue or dilemma in
community mental health or substance abuse/use practice (for example, coercion in
treatment, mental health policy or law, peer support, etc.).The paper should begin with a
comprehensive summary of the theoretical or conceptual lens chosen, should discuss how the lens applies to a current practice issue or dilemma (incorporating at least 2-3 scholarly sources about the dilemma or issue to which the lens is being applied). Ultimately, the term paper should answer: 1)
how does this framework or lens explain the issue under examination? and 2) what are
the implications for practice of looking at this issue through this lens? and conclude with
the legacy of the lens that we should consider for progressive or transformative practice.
