Supported Decision Making: Enabling Life Choices webinar

Price $35 – $75 AUD Get tickets

Event description

About the Event  

Everybody needs and seeks help to make decisions from time to time. Yet for many people with disability, the right to make choices about their own lives is denied to them, or not supported well.

Presented by Citizen Advocate and Decision Coach, Jenny Smith, and drawing on her decades of experience, this webinar is an introduction to the principles and processes of true supported decision making.

We all learn and grow through the decisions we make. Instead of making decisions for a person, ensuring they have the support and information they need to make decisions in everyday life, and the support to learn from their decisions helps people become wiser and better decision makers.

Whilst we encourage you to join us at the time if you can, this webinar will be recorded and be available to watch for 14 days after the event.
