NEW VIRTUAL COURSE

BUILDING A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT

BUILDING A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT

BRINGING THE DISABILITY COMMUNITY TOGETHER

THROUGH GROUP SUPPORT, ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION

Join Diane Cooper-Gould, parent and child advocate, in PEATC’s latest free online self-paced course. This course is designed to help the participant create, connect and grow a community group of supportive individuals. These types of supportive communities could provide mutual peer support, community advocacy, education and/or activities for the group. Too often, caretakers and those with complex needs feel isolated and alone. Developing a structured way for connecting with others who understand and share similar challenges and dreams can open a whole new world of friendship and opportunities for all.

 

In this course, we will cover a step-by-step guide for building a supportive group in person or online, with or without the partnership of an outside organization. We will also cover two case studies and provide resources for the participant to use when building a personal community of support in their own community. The series will also feature a section on troubleshooting and maintaining this type of group over time. There will be opportunities for participants to ask questions of other participants and of the instructor.

 

June 9th  through July 1st
