This report is the first of two
reports being prepared as part of a broader project titled the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
Recovery-Oriented Psychosocial Disability Support (ROPDS) – Growing National
Workforce Capability Project ('the Project').
A key deliverable of the Project
is a Literature Review and a Synthesis Report regarding good practice in recovery-oriented
psychosocial practice service provision contextualised to the National
Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) environment. The Literature Review and
Synthesis Report is divided into two stages: Stage One – The Current Landscape;
and Stage Two – The Future Horizon.
The Current Landscape reports on Stage One of
the Project and provides a summary of a literature review that focused on the
history of recovery; recovery-oriented practice; the current practice
environment, and key considerations for Stage Two of the Project. The Future
Horizon will report on Stage Two, providing information to guide the NDIS ROPDS
Project team in developing a consistent national picture of the recovery-oriented
capabilities required for psychosocial disability support workers. Stage Two
will build on what we have learnt from the Stage One review and will more
directly explore how to address the barriers and workforce-related issues
impacting on effective recovery-oriented practice for NDIS participants with
psychosocial supports in their plans.
