Join Shelley Nessman and Sheldon Schwitek to learn about Circle of Friends

Connections and friendships are imperative for many different reasons. Statistics say that loneliness is as great a health determinant as smoking! To have and be a friend is critical to our well-being and the experience of friendship brings meaning to all our lives. This workshop will highlight practical ways to support and enhance opportunities for people who are more vulnerable and isolated as a result of their experience with disability. Emphasis will be on supporting natural connections between home, school, and community, as well as strategies for developing more intentional connections and friendship possibilities. The concept known as the “Circle of Friends” will be discussed, provided information and ideas on how to develop a circle/network.
