Book Launch: From Therapeutic Relationships to Transitional Care

2:00pm - 3:00pm

You are invited to a virtual event to learn more about a new publication from Routledge: From Therapeutic Relationships to Transitional Care: A Theoretical and Practical Roadmap. Hear from a panel of speakers who offer different perspectives on this important work. 

This publication provides a foundational understanding of therapeutic relationships and the transitional discharge model (TDM) developed in Ontario by a team led by Dr. Cheryl Forchuk, Assistant Scientific Director at Lawson Health Research Institute. This approach is considered a “good practice” by the World Health Organization (WHO) and was recently included in its Guidance on Community Mental Health Services. 

The transition from hospital to community is complex and can be challenging for people who have been diagnosed with a mental illness. TDM is a person-centered, evidenced-based approach that creates a safety net by providing seamless support during this transition. Peer support workers play an important role in providing support and links to community-based services based on people’s expressed needs for support. 

More about the Transitional Discharge Method, shown in Ontario to be a beneficial and cost-effective approach to care as people are discharged from hospital, preventing re-admission:
