The seven habits of recovery-oriented psychiatrists: a non-clinical guide for personal growth and development

  • Arun Jha (a1) and Mithilesh Jha (a2)
Summary

British mental health trusts are trying to organise and deliver services based on recovery principles. Psychiatrists are perceived to be either reluctant or opposed to adopting these principles, although there is some support for recovery-oriented practice. In this paper we highlight the recovery needs of psychiatrists and propose a framework of internalising recovery principles in order to develop recovery-conducive habits based on Stephen Covey's popular book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
