Nova Scotia in the Fall


[Chocolate lake outside Chocolate Lake Hotel in Halifax – a workshop venue]

Well we’ve been back a week now and i think I’ve recovered enough to reflect on our recent trip: one week across Nova Scotia. It wsa pretty full on: 2 introductory workshops in Sydney (yes there is a smaller one!) and Truro. 100 and 143 people. Very full and full  of energy, 2 master class level 2 workshops in Halifax (110 each time), 2 regional tele-health conferences and 9 individual team coaching sessions.

It was really exciting for us to hear about the positive changes (and challenges) that had occurred across Nova Scotia in all types of mental health services. Also to hear the developing history of Halifax, the first site in 2011, the second wave of the Valley and Cumberland and the services just beginning everywhere. Its very moving to hear of the commitment of staff in taking risks with a  new system and their appreciation.

We noticed this last time we were in Nova Scotia and it happened again – talking about CAPA for five days draws us into thinking about issues a little deeper and from different perspectives. And this time we found ourselves reflecting on the importance of formulation in the Choice process. Without good formulation someones goals are really just wishes. And good goals need a formulation to evolve from.

So we a section of the masterclass PowerPoint around this. It was quite thought provoking and we shall add more content to this soon. In a week or so the new site will be uploaded and this presentation will be there.

Finally thanks to all for making us so welcome: Sharon in particular, Laura for her logistic support and Dana and John for a night out with old friends! Plus we got see and ice hockey game! Heaven.
