Mastering Support Coordination Boundaries

Identify and manage the vital boundaries you need to survive and thrive

Conflicting input, multiple relationships and incredibly complex issues are the everyday work of a Support Coordinator.

This advanced workshop will assist you to identify and manage the vital boundaries you need to survive and thrive.

We uncover the grey areas of Support Coordination, working at the boundaries, diving deep into the diversity of styles required for success.

We will explore:

  • Defining the type of support you provide with each individual

  • Working with conflicting input from families, providers and other stakeholders

  • When and how to engage external supports like advocacy, public guardians, community visitors or the NDIS Commission and other regulators

  • Supporting self advocacy

  • Troubleshooting complex scenarios where Support Coordinators are tempted (or encouraged!) to ignore their boundaries

Note: This is an advanced workshop, suitable for Support Coordinators with at least 6 months experience in the role. For an introduction to the role boundaries of Support Coordinators, check out our Role Boundaries webinar.
