UBC OKANAGAN: Family Governance Workshop – Oct. 27-29th

Check out the Family Governance workshop being offered at UBCO!  Thanks to Assunta Rosal (MSW, RSW) for passing on this info.  See below.

My name is Assunta Rosal, I am a parent of a young adult with Intellectual Disabilities who is transitioning out of the school system (SD #23) and into adulthood.  I am also a recent graduate of the UBC Okanagan Masters of Social Work program.  

I am on a committee that has organized a Family Governance conference at UBC Okanagan.  This is a model of service delivery that works towards increased flexibility. This conference is directed at parents looking for supports for their young adult children that are more innovative inclusive, client-centred and family supported and/or self-advocates who want to have more input into shaping their lives. I have attached the program agenda for your perusal. We want to get the word out to parents and self- advocates through out our region. Please feel free to share this with any of your contacts!

The conference costs $50.00 (this covers refreshments and lunch).  There is a speaker on the evening of the 27th who is a parent/advocate with 20 years’ experience in Family Governance – this part of the program is paid for by CLBC Community Councils South & North Okanagan and is free to parents.

Planning on going?  Leave us a comment!
