Fortunately the deadline for the application has been extended a week, to March 24.

I'm seeking involvement from several panelists, to provide appropriate engagement with the participants. I have tentative connection with Pam Inaba and I'd appreciate others as well.

I add a first draft "learning objective" statement which speaks to working oppression concerns under present conditions.





107 word learning objectives statement =

Lived experience beyond the "mental illness" frame involves developing the "life project" and constructing the way of being in a creative and meaningful fashion. Panelists will speak to their experience in supporting "paths to safety" as they pursue their "life projects," the social role of transcending involvement in "mental health" (as client/survivor or as compassionate provider), and the roles of discrimination and intersectionality. The learning objective is to raise the level of people's insight and conversation in regards the risks taken and the "safety strategies" that may obtain. The deep concern would be to help upgrade client/survivor understanding of reconciliation while facing oppression, under prevailing social conditions.
