Doing Our Best Work:
10 Ingredients of Quality Support
In this 17-minute video, Peter looks at ten essential components of quality direct support. A video for training and discussion with people providing or coordinating direct support, Doing Our Best work is based on a workshop Peter offers, and its production was supported by the New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities ( www.nhddc.org )
- Believing in positive possibilities
- Building community relationships
- Listening deeply
- Working as a team
- Embracing curiosity
- Understanding the power of language
- Supporting people through relationships with them
- Asking “What brings out the best in this person?”
- Having power with, not power over
- Questioning structures and policies that limit people
“How do I get these!??” you ask excitedly.
It’s easy. Send me money. The CDs are $10 each. You can either
- Credit cards – shop in my store to buy online via credit card or your Paypal account. You don’t need to have an account to use your credit card.
- Email me and tell me how many dozen — I mean how many — you’d like, and tell me where to send them. Then send me money. If you could add a couple bucks for postage, great.
- Or just send the money (checks are fine): my mailing info
- If you live in the Madison area, you can request personal delivery! I will deliver your CD to your door and SING to you. Yes, this costs more, but it is (not) worth it!
