Wise Webinar Series: 

What Is Supported Decision Making and why is it important?

with Michael Kendrick

Please join us on Wednesday, October 14th for our webinar, What is Supported Decision Making and why is it important?
 

Supported decision making is a practice that has developed to assist people with strengthening their role as decision makers in their own lives. This has come about because many people have had their legal authority to make their own decisions, or have had the experience of being treated as if they cannot competently make their own decisions by others. Supported decision making is an emerging practice to contend with all of these challenges.

Learning Objectives (Info, tools, and skills attendees will receive):

  • A general familiarization with supported decision making
  • How it can be linked with other progressive practices
  • How it fits into the legal system and International treaties
  • How it has been applied in practice
  • How to find supported decision making resources easily
  • How to support it in your locality
  • Cultural issues and their impact

Do you require an accommodation, materials in alternate format or have inquiries about accessibility in this event? If so, please reach out to [email protected] no later than 5pm Friday prior to this webinar. Due to the short turnaround of our webinar series we are unable to accommodate same day requests. We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully.

*Please note: Wise maintains registration and attendance records for our events and training programs. Attendees that fully participate in events and/or complete training programs will receive a certificate to document  full participation as back up for billing purposes.  Wise is required to monitor participation in our courses and provide reports to our funding sources so that they may utilize these records in the course of their audits of programs. These reports may include actual time spent by attendee name, event/training title, county and state. Reports are provided to ensure there is documented proof of the appropriate use of government funds for the purposes of professional development.

Supported employment is rooted in the firm belief that all people deserve respect, dignity, and self-determination.  Here at Wise, we are committed to standing up for and embracing positive changes in policies and practices to stamp out oppression and discrimination in our institutions and systems. We are focused on our mission of inclusion and equitable employment for people with disabilities. With this in mind, we ask that all participants extend respect, humility and grace during our events. We strive to create a learning platform where we all leave with new ways of thinking, doing and moving supported employment forward.
