BOOK TICKETS HERE About the Workshop:  The role of a support worker is complex and multi-faceted. Paid staff can make a significant contribution to a person’s life – enabling the person to live a rich life and pursue their own unique goals and dreams.  What lies at the heart of the role is, however, frequently invisible.

Securing the Good Life: Developing Safeguards for Vulnerable People

October 31 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
QLD Baptist Centre, 53 Prospect Road Gaythorne
Brisbane, QLD 4051 Australia

A$65.00 - A$150.00

To be human is to be vulnerable. However, people with disability often live with greater vulnerability than others. In an attempt to keep people safe it is possible to limit their lives by being over-protective and so worried about risk that the person has little chance of experiencing the good things of life.

This seminar will highlight the importance of recognising and understanding an individual’s vulnerabilities, as well as explore ways to manage these areas in a positive, life expanding way.
