Welcome to the March edition of the 101 Friends e-newsletter

March 1, 2011

It’s been a busy spring so far – we did a workshop in Vancouver at the Centre for Peace which we enjoyed so much (and got great feedback on, so apparently it wasn’t just us having a good time!) and we’ve been working like mad trying to meet some publishing deadlines with three new books – you’ll read about Barb Goode’s book here, but we’ve also sold out of the first edition of the 101 ways to make friends book, so have been working on a second edition, and we’ve written a facilitator’s guide to 101 ways…   the illustration above is one of the drawings from the new book.

We’ve had several requests for a self-advocates workshop on support networks, and are happy to oblige.   We’ll keep you posted about what will probably be an April event.   In June we’re excited about facilitating a couple of workshops in New York State, and then we’re part of a panel presentation on agency transformation in September in San Francisco.

Another small grant has come in to allow us to do some more travelling workshops around the province as well, focused on the Support Networks for Self Advocates booklet which we were glad to be part of facilitating with three different groups of folks from all around the province.   Our focus during this year’s work will be this booklet, but also facilitating small groups of three or four individuals and their networks, looking at ways roles can be clarified and presence can be expanded.   Let us know if you’re interested in having us come to your group.   We’ve also been speaking at staff conferences and are happy to spend more time talking to staff, who often haven’t had a lot of opportunities to debrief, share and take a moment to think things through about our new roles in a changing field.
