Belonging & Contributing: Strategies for Including People Labelled as Challenging
November 17 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
This discussion day will build on the information shared in the workshop, Responding Well to People with ‘Challenging Behaviours.
Family members will be able to continue learning with Ann and from each other through going deeper into the workshop content, asking more questions & thinking about how they, or others, relate with their loved one.
Families will have the opportunity to consider how to apply the ideas presented to their own family circumstances. Ann will also discuss the role of family members in assisting others around the person to understand them and to support them well.
It is hoped that this workshop will provide families with the opportunity to form networks with other participants.

About the Presenter:
Ann Greer has over fifteen years professional experience working with people whose behaviours are seen as challenging. As well as drawing on the teachings of Donnellan, LaVigna and Willis, most of her learning and understandings have come from her greatest teachers, people with disabilities themselves. Ann is the Manager of Community Connection Inc. in Townsville and mother of three adults, two of whom live with disability.
Who Should Attend?
This is an opportunity for family members to meet with Ann and a small number of other families to consider in greater depth how to respond well to people with ‘challenging behaviours.’
Attendance at a previous full day workshop is necessary for participation in the discussion day.
A full day workshop is being held in Toowoomba on 16th November or participants may have attended the workshop earlier this year, or in previous years.
