AACP Road to Resolution Conference - Beyond the paradigm shift: effective AND ethical collaborative advocacy

Date and time: 
June 10, 2021 - 8:45am to 10:45am
Event type: 

This is the third session in a series of 8 sessions in AACP's Road to Resolution Conference, running from April through to November 2021.

How can we be effective advocates while remaining true to the goals and values of the Collaborative Process? The IACP Ethical Standards address advocacy including: our obligation to support client self-determination, set reasonable expectations, be mindful of the impact of our personal values and beliefs and avoid contributing to interpersonal conflict. This webinar will explore Collaborative Advocacy in light of s. 3.2 of the Standards. How do we use an interest-based model where there is little trust or goodwill and what is the role of the law? What does it really mean to set realistic expectations? How do we support client self-determination when clients are bullied, can’t decide or we don’t agree with the outcome? How do we avoid working from our own personal values and experience? How do we avoid contributing to interpersonal conflict without sacrificing outcome? This webinar will deepen participants’ capacity to be more effective non-adversarial advocates.

All sessions are recorded and can be viewed on demand by conference delegates who have registered for them.
