2019 Mini Course/Lecture Series on Disabilities: One Day the World Will Be A Perfect Place: Toolbox for Change – Glen Mills
April 16 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
The Institute on Disabilities at Temple University hosts guest speakers and lecturers several times each year for its Mini Course/Lecture Series on Disabilities. How does a traditional organization move towards person-centered supports? How do caregivers maintain their sense of purpose, joy, and commitment in times of growing complexity and changing expectations? A day-long workshop focused on specific strategies for transforming system-centered organizations to person- and family-centered organizations while never losing track of joy. David Pitonyak is the Director of Imagine. He provides consultation to individuals who experience disabilities, their families, and their paid support workers throughout North America. The foundation of David’s work is that we are social beings. Our happiness depends on the development of enduring and positive relationships.
