Personhood, decision making and choice: Frameworks for upholding rights with people with disabilities

What does it mean to be a PERSON with a disability in Australia? How can human rights be used to inform approaches to support? What does supported decision making mean and how can it be applied in supporting choice and control? How does the idea of ‘belonging’ change the way we see community inclusion?

In this Masterclass by Deakin University, participants will explore these questions and engage with ideas of personhood, human rights and supported decision making. Frameworks for practice informed by these ideas will be presented and applied to two key life areas, health and sexuality.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
