Finding the treasure: everyday moments of becoming well in a semi-rural place
Summary of paper presented at 5th Contemporary Drug Problems: Rethinking 'change': New theories, new topics, new questions, new methods. Prato, Italy, 2019
This presentation reports on the results of a qualitative study exploring harmful drug and alcohol consumption and becoming-well assemblages in a semi-rural place in Victoria, Melbourne. It highlights the material and environmental forces that have influenced changes in health and explores how mapping these forces within the counselling space can challenge old ideas of how change is recognised.
