Building Community through Social Capital
May 6 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm$25
All individuals with disabilities and their family members (as well as professionals who are involved with the family) are interested in seeing themselves or their son/daughter/relative be successful in life. In fact, one of the biggest fear individuals and families have is that their loved one might be lonely or at serious risk when they are gone. Although none of us can predict the future, we can look at ways and means to better prepare for the future by understanding the impact of friendships in our lives. Sociologists call this “social capital” and it is amazing what our relationships do for us. This session will help you think about how friendships can be better developed over time, and, in turn, build a more inclusive community.
