Please join us for the Sydney launch of
APPLYING DEEP DEMOCRACY IN HUMAN SERVICES:
Diversity, inclusion and innate powers
By Julia Wolfson, Ph.D.
The roll out of the NDIS makes Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services essential reading. One in 20 Australians depend on care to survive. They are not alone. One billion people across the globe of all ages – one eighth of our human community – are dependent on health, disability and/or care and protective systems and providers. For millions of people, everyday survival depends on caregivers, supporters, care programs and funding. The need may be temporary, longer term or lifelong. Many people in these systems are lonely, isolated and lack meaningful opportunities to participate and contribute. This book brings together a wide array of skills and pioneering approaches to revolutionise the way we design and facilitate person-directed services, interact in all the helping professions, and sustain those who devote their lives to the care and support of others.
Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services is relevant for caregivers, family members, educators and direct support professionals, and people who rely on support and care. This book is also important for policy makers and community developers, facilitators, leaders and develop caregivers and direct support professionals, and build welcoming communities.
Julia is an Australian, and works internationally. This is a rare opportunity for you to put your comments and questions to her face to face.
Joanna Kalowski, international mediator and human rights advocate, will convene the event. After the launch, she will open the floor to questions and comments: we hope the exchange of ideas will be of use to you in your particular fields.
