Supported Decision Making – Workshop for Organisations and Professionals
- Thursday 27 October, 10am to 12pm and Thursday 10 November, 9.30am to 12.30pm
- Online via Teams
The Supported Decision Making workshop for organisations and professionals focuses on the principles and practice of supported decision making in work settings.
This workshop will take place over two days:
- Part 1: Thursday 27 October, 10am to 12pm
- Part 2: Thursday 10 November, 9.30am to 12.30pm
Through practical activities, attendees will identify what they can do individually and what action can be taken with others to give good support for decision making so that people with disability can make more of their own decisions in life. Attendees will look at barriers and how to overcome them to provide good support for decision making. Attendees will understand how their involvement in someone else’s decision making can shape a person’s life.
Attendees will learn about the importance of their role and their organisation, including how supported decision making helps them to meet practice standards. Attendees will begin exploring how to apply these practices in their professional role to have a positive impact on the lives of people with intellectual disability.
Attendees will learn about CID’s My Rights Matter Supported Decision Making Hub. The Hub has free resources available for people with disability, their family and friends, and professionals working in organisations. The Hub is updated monthly.
