Getting to the Heart of What Matters:  The Role of a Support Worker

This full day workshop will be an opportunity for support workers to critically reflect upon the essential purpose of their role, the values that drive “support”, and the sorts of relationships which are core to supporting someone well, particularly in relation to valued roles and community belonging.

Topics covered will include:

  • A good life
  • Your role in a person’s life
  • Getting to know the person in order to assist them well
  • Supporting belonging, contribution and relationships
  • What gets in the way of good support?

Upcoming events

  • 23rd January, Brisbane
  • 20th April, Gold Coast

Responding Well to Challenging Behaviours

Participants will be encouraged to understand more about the situations in which people with ‘challenging behaviour’ find themselves and to explore how they can best respond to support the person.

This workshop will involve information sharing, practical tips and strategies and learning through stories. It will not provide a recipe to ‘fix’ the person.

Topics covered will include:

  • Defining and describing challenging behaviour
  • Communication and its role in behaviour
  • Understanding our part in the behaviour of others
  • Practical tips for ‘making a start’
