Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast
This unit will situate ‘the individual’ in the context of person, family and their extended network of support. You will be encouraged to reflect upon your own values, beliefs and self-care needs, and that of others, in order to broaden your understanding of ‘the individual’ and the positive, respectful and empowering relationships that underpin quality individualised support. In this unit, you will explore a diverse range of lived experiences and cultural contexts. You will be introduced to the ethical principles of human rights, equity, justice, choice and control, and examine various ways in which the needs, goals and preferences of each person can be reflected in the planning and delivery of meaningful, individualised support.
