“Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I may not remember. Involve me and I’ll understand.” - Native American saying.
Welcome! You have made the first step, which is to see what we can do to help you in your recovery journey, or to help you help others in their recovery journey. Recovery College courses at Ty Cwm Rhondda offer our patients the opportunity to build skills in self-management, communication, team working, emotional intelligence and problem solving.
Recovery College at Ty Cwm Rhondda
Our Recovery College courses and workshops have been designed with the expectation that many of our patients may be nervous, worried, or have difficulty concentrating.
For every course and workshop there are two trainers, one of whom may be a peer trainer who has direct life experience of recovery. The other will be a practitioner trainer, for example a psychologist, social worker, occupational therapist, registered nurse or healthcare worker, who are experienced in supporting the individuals who use our services.
Both trainers will work closely with all Recovery College participants, guiding them through the course/workshop, and helping them to feel confident and relaxed throughout the process.
