Do you work with a guardian who has a tendency to “take over” decision-making for a person you support? Though these situations can be frustrating, it’s important for us to understand the mindset and perspectives of the guardian in such instances.
Concerns about taking risks and beliefs about decision making capabilities — especially when paired with an overwhelming desire to protect the person — need to be taken seriously.
This session will explore ways to support the guardian that also empower the person to make choices and experience self-determination in life.
A recording will be made available for registrants.
