About the Event

This two-day course provides practical knowledge and skills to support workers understand the NDIS and how to achieve optimal outcomes for service users by applying recovery oriented practice to the planning process.  Over the two days we will be exploring different perspectives of recovery and how to use both informal and formal supports, including the NDIS, to achieve personal goals of recovery. Content covered includes

  • Understand the concept of personal recovery and the different definitions of recovery and how these contribute to the process of goal setting in the NDIS.
  • Be able to think critically about their own life story and what NDIS supports and other informal/community supports could contribute to living a better life using the CHIME recovery model
  • Have a general understanding of the NDIS application, planning and review procedures and where to go for more information
  • Have self-care and safety strategies in place to manage wellbeing and support recovery
