Workshop on "Good Practice" in the Collaboration Between Professionals and Mutual Aid Groups

A one-day workshop on problems of collaboration between mutual aid groups and professionals was held in September 1992 in Ottawa, preceding the first International Conference on Self-help and Mutual Aid. The workshop's purpose was to initiate a dialogue concerning "good practice" issues in research and collaboration with mutual aid groups with the long range goal of developing ethical guidelines for both parties.
