 Recovery is a key concept in the field of mental health care. We developed a 4-day Assertive Community Treatment training program, which was designed to promote recovery-oriented attitudes for mental health care providers. Thirty-nine training participants completed a self-report questionnaire pre- and post-training, and their attitudes toward the concept of recovery were assessed both quantitatively and qualitatively. The results suggested that the training led to a further understanding of recovery, recovery orientation, and the client-centered philosophy of mental health care. These results indicate that the developed training program may contribute to favorable changes with positive effects on the provision of recovery-oriented services.
