The Training aims to introduce the Self-directed Support approach in public social services and third sector entities, considering the different situations and variants of profiles that social intervention professionals have to attend to.
Training-action program for social workers from municipalities and NGOs.
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights” (Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 1, 1948)
In the last years the person-centered approach has been consolidated and social workers use it for their interventions. Today we know that it is not so much about putting the person in the center and social workers making decisions on behalf of that person, based on his/her will and rights, but about offering the support the person needs to be able to make his/her own decisions.
The European Model of Self-directed Support seeks to guarantee and preserve this approach: to support and escort the people who approach the Social Services in taking decisions so, at every moment, they have the possibility of choosing and controlling how the action or support plan is organized to achieve the results agreed with the professionals, based on the person will and rights.
