Learning from Achievement

We can learn so much from our achievements. They tell us something very deep about ourselves, our motivations and our capacities: http://max-neill.blogspot.com/2011/12/learning-from-achievements.html See More

Max Neill commented on Ron Irvine's blog post CAPACITY THINKING
"The presentation went really well. I pointed out that much of what is called 'challenging behaviour' is iatrogenic, in that it is caused by practitioners and by the service system. I asked people how much they would say their services…"

The Power of Stories

Robert McKee says that stories are the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today. When Michael Smull visited Central Lancashire, he too talked about the power of '5 minute stories' as an educational tool, encouraging us to reveal how important the issues we are talking about are by relating them to the real experiences of real people.In my work promoting person centred thinking and planning, I've found that to be a fundamental truth about how to get your message across. What really…See More

Hi again!  I think I saw your name on the workbook of a course that I took last week - "Person Centred Risk"  Do you work with HSA in the UK?

We would be really glad to have more of your writing here on the Inclusion Network.  There are a growing bunch of people who are copying their own personal blog posts here on the network and then linking back to the original post.

Your thoughts and writing resonate with many people here - thanks for sharing!
