The Right Question Institute (RQI) specializes in designing simple educational methods and tools to teach skills essential for self-advocacy and agency. RQI helps people working on the front lines of a range of systems build the ability of their clients to: a) ask better questions, and b) participate more effectively in decisions that affect their lives and the lives of their families.
In this interactive training session, participants will learn a practical method to:
- Strengthen clients’ sense of agency and voice as they navigate systems.
- Build people’s capacity to advocate for themselves and take action on their own behalf in all places where decisions are being made that affect them, in the legal system and beyond.
Participants will examine the method through an active learning experience, explore applications in different fields, and discuss how to integrate the method into their work. After the session there will be opportunities for participants to receive personalized support in learning how to use the method with their clients.
At the end of the webinar, participants will receive a download link for supplemental resources, including the tool introduced in the webinar, a facilitation guide, and further reading.
Who should attend: This webinar will be relevant to anyone interested in building people’s skills to advocate for their needs. People working on the front lines in legal services, criminal justice, adult education, direct services, community-based organizations, and public agencies are especially encouraged to attend.
