dc.description.abstractBackground: The Recovery paradigm is well and truly established in the lexicon of mental health service delivery in Australia. Psychiatrists will have to modify their practice substantially in the coming years to become more recovery focused and psychiatric training will have to change accordingly. Objectives: To highlight major areas in which critical psychiatry concepts could aid the discipline to be more aligned with recovery principles. Methods: The first author will provide a critical analysis on the aetiology of psychosis from a trauma informed viewpoint. The second paper will highlight controversies regarding the evidence base for psychopharmacology through a review of two books written by prominent critical psychiatrist Joanna Moncrieff. After a brief critical analysis of the potential risks and benefits of labelling and diagnostic expansion, the session will conclude with an interview with author Kate Richards about her book 'Madness: A Memoir', describing her lived experience of major mental illness. Findings: It is anticipated that the combined papers, interview and the resulting discussion with the audience will draw a link between the two concepts. Conclusions: The paradigm change currently needed in psychiatry leading to incorporation of recovery principles will be greatly facilitated by an understanding of critical psychiatry.
