Psychology and disability: Minimizing ableism in counselling
How can health care providers work best with people who have disabilities? What are different ways of understanding disability and how it might or might not affect mental health? Kaley Roosen, a psychology intern at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, presents her ideas.
CAMH Education collaborated with the University of Toronto's School of Continuing Studies, the Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development and the Centre for Effective Practice to present a Mini-Med School. The sessions featured topics on mental health and addiction geared to developing a more informed public, a better caregiver or a competent guardian.

Psychiatrist field notes: Reflections on approaches to care for patients with concurrent disorders
In this video series, several psychiatrists share their experiences of identifying and treating patients with concurrent disorders. They reflect on how they approached patients early in their careers, what they've learned since then and how they approach patients now. They tell candid stories and give advice to residents about patients with substance use disorders.
Simulation and education
"What's so beautiful about simulation when it comes to the safety front and the quality front is that simulation, if done right, could really tackle areas of deficiencies and nightmare (situations)," says Dr. Amitai Ziv, founder of MSR, Israel's Center for Medical Simulation. Simulation teaches people what to do in tough scenarios before encountering them in the real world, where the consequences can be more severe. Built on the concepts of reflection, debriefing and transparency, simulation enhances safety, education and care.
