Living out your profession in a generic world

Knowing what you do and why

Many health professionals working in generic roles struggle to keep their professional identity. Dr Julie Rowse, a proud occupational therapist, has worked in generic mental health positions throughout the first 17 years of her career. Each profession brings a unique perspective to a generic role, for example a case management position. Julie is passionate about her professional roots as an occupational therapist and as a clinical supervisor of numerous staff across the disciplines has always encouraged health professionals to embrace and use their specific skills within the generic role.

This workshop will inspire participants to connect with their professional roots and identify how their specific professional skills can be used within a generic role.

Engaging people in treatment through the use of metaphor

A practical skills-based approach for health professionals

Engaging clients in treatment is critical to successful health outcomes. If a client is not actively participating in treatment it is unlikely to be effective. People are more likely to engage in treatment if they understand what their health issue is, what treatment will look like and how it will make a difference in their life. The use of metaphors to help explain health conditions and treatment can be a valuable engagement tool. Metaphors are either verbal stories or visual representations that clients can relate to, and can be very helpful at engaging clients in treatment.

This workshop will provide participants with an understanding of how to use metaphors to engage clients through the teaching of practical skills that can be directly applied to the everyday workplace.

Training Workshops

Dr Julie Rowse has developed and facilitated a number of successful workshops throughout her career and has a Certificate IV Workplace Assessment and Training.

Julie has extensive experience in developing and delivering workshops and in-service training sessions on a variety of topics related to the mental health field. Two examples of mental health training programs include ‘Shape Up’ Healthy Lifestyle Program and ‘Training Workshop for Health Professionals on Fitness to Drive’. ‘Shape Up’ Healthy Lifestyle Program was designed to assist patients with weight gain from psychotropic medications. ‘Training Workshop for Health Professionals on Fitness to Drive’ was developed to increase the knowledge and skills of health professionals when working with patients who drive.

In addition to being a trained mental health clinician, Julie is also a Christian with an active faith. She graduated with a Preliminary Theological College Certificate (First-class Honours) from Moore Theological College, Sydney. Julie developed a ‘Mental Health Information Day’ for people in pastoral care roles to assist them to gain an understanding of mental health and mental illness. This information day also explains how as pastoral carers they are able to work with people with mental health issues, and how and when to refer to professional supports.
