The Hidden Leader; Families and Self-Advocates Steering Agencies in the Right Direction
“If life is like a car… families are the steering wheel”
This interactive workshop will explore the important team relationship between families, self-advocates and staff. Participants will learn how agencies can support these experienced groups to assist staff when creating positive and sustainable change. This workshop will look at the wisdom of professionals, families and self-advocates and what happens when anyone on the team becomes isolated and uninformed. Participants will leave with a better understanding of “how” and “where” leadership can occur within their own agencies, and how to get this leadership activated.
