Inclusion WA's Professional Development Newsletter
July 2014
Hello Everyone

As many of you will be aware, the standards for disability services have been revised and the new National Standards for Disability Services have been rolled out. 

Our workshops have been updated to reflect these changes and you can learn more about the Standards in our Disability and Inclusion Workshop and our Community Inclusion Workshop. 

If you would like to access a copy of the Standards you can do so in the Resources section of our website. 

In other news our Professional Boundaries for Support Workers course is booked out for August - however we have another session in October for those who missed the July and August events. 

This course is always popular so please head to the website to book your place before it sells out!

30 July - Disability and Inclusion

This is a workshop designed to introduce the fundamentals of inclusion whilst providing a background on what disabilities are and how we can work better to include people with disabilities.

27 August - Community Inclusion Workshop

This workshop relies on drawing parallels.  You will think about a good life in the context of community, drawing from your uniquely human experience to consider the way connections with others are made and enhanced. This same thinking will then be analysed based on what we know about the people we support.

This workshop will encourage you to think about your version of a fulfilling life, and relate that to what others may see as a rich life for themselves. The entire premise of this workshop is about exploring the richness of life and the ways we can support others to share in that richness.

15 October - Professional Boundaries for Support Workers

This workshop explores the nature of boundaries through interactive open discussion and reflective learning practices. Participants will explore existing boundaries between themselves in their support worker role, and the individuals they work for. We will then explore the necessary steps to prevent boundary violations.

This is a topic that asks participants to define what a good “working relationship” is, and how it differs from being a “friend” of the people we are paid to support.
