About the Course
Advocates often face ethical and practical dilemmas as they offer support to people. From passionately promoting choices that may be ‘unwise’ or ‘risky’ to knowing when to challenge decisions on behalf of a person who might otherwise be unable to do so, advocates must be confident in identifying and resolving dilemmas.
This one day course offers a wonderful opportunity to explore common dilemmas, as well as resolving real life problems faced by participants.

Exploring what is a dilemma, why dilemmas exist and what happens when we face one.
Common Dilemmas |
A chance to explore common areas that cause dilemmas (for instacne working with people who don’t understand advocacy, families or professionals who don’t want you there, supporting people to make choices that others view as ‘risky’ or ‘unwise’)
Resolving Dilemmas |
Opportunity for participants to bring real life scenarios or problems that are causing dilemmas – with a strong emphasis on developing strategies to resolve them.
