Course length: 1 day
Who should attend?
This course is primarily for frontline staff who work with individuals with a cognitive disability who are at risk of contact, or in contact with the Justice System.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore practical person centred ways of thinking and working with the people they support who have a cognitive disability and who might be in contact with the Justice system. There will be opportunities for participants to practice specific skills and engage in activities that will build their knowledge and confidence as the day progresses.
This course will compliment already available person centred courses throughout NSW.
By the end of this session, learners will have a better understanding of:
- Person centred principles and how specifically they relate to their work with cognitive disability
- How to use practical approaches in their everyday work to enhance opportunities and positive outcomes for individuals
- The potential impact of their role in supporting people to make positive steps in their own lives and at their own pace
