Recovery is about assisting consumers to achieve self identified goals, by focusing on the goal and overcoming or reducing barriers that might stand in the way of its realization. The primary focus is on strengths, directing energy to what the consumer is good at, rather than what they cannot do. These strengths are utilized in mapping a course towards the realization of the goals. It involves taking risks and seeing mistakes as part of the learning process, rather than evidence that the goal is unrealistic and unachievable.
