Event description

Description

The roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) makes Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services essential reading. One in 20 Australians depend on health, disability and/or care and protective systems and providers. Many people in these systems are lonely, isolated and lack meaningful opportunities to participate and contribute. This book brings together pioneering deep democracy approaches and skills to revolutionise the way we facilitate self-directed changes in people’s lives, make our communities more welcoming, interact in all the helping professions, and sustain those who devote their lives to the care and support of others.

Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services is relevant for caregivers, family members, educators and direct support professionals, and people who rely on support and care. This book is also important for leaders of people-driven organisations, policy makers, facilitators, community developers. Join Joanna Kalowski, international mediator and human rights advocate, in disussion with the author and exchange of ideas.

This event is joyfully sponsored by Deep Democracy Institute International, Widener University Center for Social Work Education, and Kids Giving Back.
