Wise Webinar Series: 

Self management, I survived my behavior management plans with Chuck Goodwin

Please join us on Wednesday, July 8th for our webinar, Self management, I survived my behavior management plans” with Chuck Goodwin.
As we gradually moved from behavior management to an individualized person centered approach, it became apparent we needed to encourage interdependence and self management.  We needed to get away from behavior plans that looked to “fix ” the person.  Persons with developmental disabilities like everyone else don’t respond well to manipulation and control. This class will explore how to work with individuals  to navigate through the good times and the bad, developing strategies leading away from dependence on care providers. We will hear from Lance Walcott and Michael Beasley who have successfully implemented those strategies. 
Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the history of movement from control to person centered services including planning and setting goals
  • Recognize and break through disability stereotypes/misinformation that can be barriers to success
  • Learn strategies for teaching and encouraging self-management
  • Be able to identify the critical factors leading to successful transitioning to self-management
  • Recognize that the individuals we serve are our best teachers & the most important lesson we can learn is how to listen to individuals we support
  • Celebrate the positive changes
