One-day Supported Decision Making Training for Family Members with Cher Nicholson and Debbie Knowles
Date: Friday 2nd February 2018
Venue: Institute for Lifecourse and Society, NUI Galway
The family members training day will offer:
· a practical approach of how to obtain the support wishes of people with disabilities,
· helpful skills on how to offer support
· how to not let everyday difficulties stop your family member from dreaming
· an opportunity to practice and experience the skills first hand
Feedback received from people who have attended this workshop indicated they found it very useful and that it aids them to think in another way.
The workshop is not designed to aid with individual problem solving but aimed generically to support anyone in making real life decisions. The expectation is that participants will experience the work and will choose what will be helpful in their own situations and have the supports to do so.
