Advocacy for Inclusion

In this episode of Advocacy for Inclusion's Supported Decision Making Podcast, we will have a realistic look at the experience of support. None of us are perfect in the support we give. Our efforts will often involve negotiating with our personal presumptions, our good intentions, and even our own personal need to carry out our role in a particular way. We can find our way to improved support through really listening to the person we are supporting. What are they asking of us? What skills are they demonstrating if we stop and take notice? How can we better give the person space to live their life?
