„Horizonte erweitern!“ Offenes Notdienst-Fortbildungs-Curriculum

Die Drogen- und Suchthilfe sind „weite Felder“ in anhaltender Ausdehnung und rasanter Veränderung. Die Komplexität der Aufgaben, die unter erschwerten Umständen zu bewältigen sind, hat noch nie erlebte Ausmaße angenommen. Der Handlungsdruck betrifft den Alltag in verschiedensten Beratungs- und Versorgungssettings, ebenso aber die strategischen Orientierungen aller involvierten Akteure und Institutionen. Auch von „Paradigmenwechsel“ ist die Rede, ohne dass bereits rundum klar wäre, was das alles meint. Wo z.B. veränderte gesetzliche Rahmenbedingungen für die Leistungserbringung existenzielle Wirkungen haben, können notwendige grundsätzliche Überlegungen provoziert, ebenso aber an den Rand gedrängt werden. „Horizonte erweitern!“ trotz oder wegen gehetzter Fokussierung auf das Drängendste, „Zukunftsfähigkeit“ sichern bei laufender Aufgabenerfüllung, Pragmatismus, Innovation, konsequente Personenzentrierung, Veränderungsorientierung im Sinne von höherer Lebensqualität und Autonomie-Gewinn statt Resignation angesichts multimorbider Menschen in behindernden Verhältnissen…
