Description

The Community Assessment and Support Team (CAST) is pleased to present:

David Pitonyak

David Pitonyak is interested in positive approaches to difficult behaviors. He believes that difficult behaviors are "messages" which can tell us important things about a person and his or her surroundings. Understanding the "meaning" of an individual's difficult behaviors is the first step in supporting the person (and the person's supporters) to change. Check out David’s website for more information, http://www.dimagine.com/index.html

Day One: BEYOND “BEHAVIORS”: SUPPORTING COMPETENCE, CONFIDENCE AND WELL-BEING

Difficult behaviors result from unmet needs. This workshop examines seven quality of life indicators that are often missing in the life of a person who experiences our services. Based on the idea from Jean Clarke that a person's needs are best met by people whose needs are met, this day-long workshop examines strategies for supporting not only an individual who experiences disabilities but also the needs of his or her caregivers

Day Two: THE IMPORTANCE OF BELONGING

Being connected to the people we love is critical to our emotional and physical well-being. Many people experiencing our services are sick from loneliness. This workshop is about ideas for moving beyond interventions and coverage to a system that supports enduring, freely chosen relationships.
