The ‘Art of Recovery’ Book Launched

We are delighted to launch the book ‘The Art of Recovery: Six Personal Journeys’ which has been a while in the making.

The launch event in the foyer of Burwood Hospital was a great success and attended by Burwood staff, some of the books authors and their families, friends and colleagues, and MP’s Ruth Dyson and Poto Williams. The book is a collection of six stories which capture the ongoing journey of rehabilitation; recovery through self-determination and courage. Each of the six personal accounts are an opportunity to step into the rehabilitation process through the eyes of those who have lived it.

We are very grateful to the Keith Laugesen Charitable Trust and the Butson Family who sponsored this project.

To purchase a copy, see the Resources section of this website.
