Imagining possibilities takes practice!

Many of us doubt our own worth and are held back by what we see as our failings and inadequacies. We often find it difficult to be comfortable with difference, seeing it as a negative and judging people harshly. In the world we live in ‘possibility thinking’ can be a challenge. At the heart of any Person-centred work is the capacity to imagine possibilities for people and their lives. Throughout this course we will

  • focus on gifts and capacities for ourselves and for others
  • look at language and how words shape perceptions.
  • offer the Values of Inclusion to encourage people to think differently.

This course is intended to encourage participants to develop their capacity to think in terms of possibilities and in creating freedom in their imagination to see themselves and their situation differently and the future of people labelled with disability or difference. The course will be practical and interactive, with exercises that encourage participants to see the best in themselves and in others. Come and join us…see where your imagination can take you!


OIFN Shared Learning Events are designed for people living with disabilities, family members and/or loved ones, and aspiring, new, and experienced independent facilitators.

Courses will be held virtually using Zoom Video Conferencing and delivered in an interactive format, to include a combination of presentation, small group work, reflective exercises, whole group dialogue, and invitations to do some reading and reflection prior to the sessions.
