We’ve put together a “FAQ: Facilitator-Answered Questions” handout to highlight some of the gems of wisdom shared on Call #1, which was held on April 26, 2018. The topic was managing group dynamics.

The Living Well and Working Well with a Disability programs are evidence-based, peer-led health promotion workshops provided by organizations that serve people with disabilities. RTC:Rural provides training and certification for Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and other organizations to conduct the workshops. Both programs are based on the Independent Living philosophy, which recognizes that individual choice and self-determination are essential components of living independently in the community.

Since Living Well and Working Well began offering program training and implementation, over 1,600 facilitators have been trained in 47 states, in turn serving over 13,000 adults with disabilities.
