The Implementation Project, The Syracuse University Training Institute for Human Service Planning, Leadership and Change Agentry and The Moral Coherency Study Group are pleased to announce a 7 day workshop:
How to Function Morally, Coherently & Adaptively In a World that is Disfunctional, Including its Human Services
DATE: Monday the 3rd through to Sunday the 9th of July, 2017. Each day begins promptly at 8:00am; the first 6 days include evening sessions. The workshop ends at 4.30pm on the seventh day.
VENUE: Macquarie University, Herring Road, North Ryde, NSW 2113, Australia
WORKSHOP CONTENT: The Training Institute developed this workshop to equip people with a special combination of worldviews, preparation, support considerations & strategies needed to function with high moral ideals, with integrity intact, & even with effectiveness in the world generally & in human services that are full of imperfections & never-ending problems.
Some assumptions underlying the content of the workshop include:
there are powerful dynamics of disfunctionality in the world;
these dynamics endlessly express themselves in derivative disfunctionalities in society, as well as in human service approaches, systems & structures;
it is imperative that people who want to function with greater moral coherency become aware of these dynamics;
once one is aware of these dynamics, one is in a position to respond & act much more adaptively in the world;
there exists an array of adaptive strategies for living with these realities
The workshop explains the great depth and universality of problems in the world, in society, & in human services. Many of these problems are intractable, & therefore need to be confronted in order to cope with them. The workshop orients participants to craft their moral identity, & offers strategies & encouragement to live adaptively & with coherency amidst the disfunctionality.
