NEW LENOX, IL — What does it mean to treat a person with disabilities respectfully? What do the terms “exploitation,” “abuse,” and “neglect” mean? How should a suspected incident of abuse, neglect or exploitation be reported in an organization?
These questions are just a few of the discussion prompts included in “From Inquiry to Insight: Guided Discussion for Preventing Abuse and Neglect of Persons with Cognitive Disabilities,” which is an updated release from Trinity Services, Inc. Executive Director Art Dykstra and nationally renowned expert Amy Tabor.
The book is one of High Tide Press’ most popular training tools, and is meant to educate, inspire and increase discussion among professionals in the disability services field. The updated 50-page guide includes a Dialogue Deck of 52 cards with discussion prompts that professionals can use to openly talk with each other about the challenging issues of preventing abuse, neglect and exploitation.
“From Inquiry to Insight” is packaged in a three-ring binder and includes a small mesh bag for the Dialogue Deck cards. It can easily be integrated into other training programs or can be used as standalone training. The cost of the book is $24.95, and all proceeds benefit people with disabilities and mental illness who Trinity Services serves.
