Dr. Tom Pomeranz provides participants with a key to a world in which all people are allowed to have a valued life. The springboard for this presentation is founded in the maxim “an institution is not a place; it is a state of mind.” Tom explains that individuals who have few valued relationships and few things of value are living an “institutional life.” Through the telling of tales, Tom motivates the audience to look at the lives of people with disabilities through a new set of lenses. Attendees are urged to ask themselves “How would I treat myself under the most challenging of circumstances?” Tom introduces the concept of “disabilityism” explaining how one’s behavior may unwittingly cause one to behave in a discriminatory manner. To prevent the insidious behavior of the disabilitist, Tom discusses a variety of tools – “new ways of behaving” that may be exercised to support others in improving the quality of their lives. This inspiring and motivating webinar series explains the importance in utilizing universal language.
