We are all entitled to achieve our maximum potential in body, mind and spirit. That potential, our personhood, or sense of self, seems like a given state for adults. And yet, institution as a way of life, can have a profoundly detrimental affect on personhood.
We each deserve the opportunity for a good life - that offers meaning and support of who we are – every day. How can we help those we partner with continue to be who they are? How do we create environments where people thrive, no matter the frailness with which they live?
Study with experienced facilitator Megan Hannan to gain knowledge and learn ways of behaving that reinforce each individual’s sense of self. This session will grow your abilities to work in team to truly make a difference every day.
Objectives: After this workshop participants will be able to
- Explore a variety of attributes of self, practice how we access those attributes, plan how to use those with those we serve
- Recognize and experience interactive approaches that either support or detract from personhood
- Discuss the elements of common values; self awareness; and home as vital to honoring personhood
- Practice approaches to learning who people are, problem solve
