SFBT focuses on client’s resources and skills, rather than on their deficits and weaknesses to help them to find solutions and create preferred futures rather than dwelling on past failures.

Advanced Workshop: Who’s Life is it Anyway? – Enabling Choice & Self Direction in Social Care Practice

Online

This is a bespoke workshop specifically for social care workers/leaders/managers that have some understanding of Social Role Valorisation. This workshop will focus in depth on some the key concept of choice. The belief that people with disability are capable of determining their own life choices – including where and with whom they live, how they support themselves and what they aspire to achieve – is relatively recent. Historically, services for people with disability had largely been premised on the belief that they needed to be segregated in institutions, away from mainstream community life.
