Would you like to learn creative facilitation skills? Often our conversations and planning with people who have a disability and others who have needs often focuses on what people can’t do or finding “services” to fill people’s lives. This workshop will enhance your ability to facilitate deeper conversations which assist individuals to develop real and sustainable connection in their neighbourhoods and communities. It is especially relevant to those who facilitate Circles of Support.
Topics covered in this workshop include:
• Disrupting patterns of thinking and resistance,
• Creating vision,
• Embracing diversity, values and community,
• Exploring valued roles,
• Bringing life to meetings,
• Doing work that matters,
• Getting unstuck, and
• Connecting people and ideas.
This workshop would be of interest to those who facilitate Circles of Support, team meetings or planning meetings that aim to increase the inclusion of people who might be marginalised from the community e.g. people with a disability, people who have a mental illness, people who are aging etc.
