Core Topics Include:

Person Directed Living

Starting with a strengths-based mindset, learners will explore three key priorities:

  1. Promoting self-direction and self advocacy
  2. Encouraging contribution
  3. Fostering belonging

Through numerous video stories, interviews and practical tools, participants will be inspired and equipped to support each person to live their best life!

Respect, Disrespect & Abuse

RESPECT is the bullseye we aim for every day. We want to see every person who receives support and everyone who provides support experiencing respect.

The challenge is ensuring we all share a common understanding of the word “respect”. Our goal is to clarify this important topic so expectations are clear.

The RESPECT, Disrespect & Abuse course helps people to define, describe and illustrate the differences between 1) respect and disrespect, 2) disrespect and abuse, and 3) abusive actions that are non-criminal from acts that violate the criminal code.

Through multiple videos, case studies and a solid grounding of organizational values, policy, legislation and regulations, participants will gain a clear sense of the privilege it is to serve people with respect, and the responsibility that comes with being placed in a position of trust.
