Joanna Goode, is the Director of Facilitation Wellington Dufferin, and is the independent facilitator for my sister and family. Joanna and I have worked together for the last year to implement Sarah’s support circle and Sarah has seen tremendous growth during that time. A big part of Sarah’s growth is directly linked to the support that Joanna and Sarah’s support circle have been providing.
Joanna has a lot of experience working with families and individuals with a disability. In this episode Joanna and I discuss what independent facilitation is and the similarities/ differences to coaching. Joanna also shares a story of a young woman and how independent facilitation and a support circle has benefited her through the transition to post high-school. Lastly, we discuss how to start working with a facilitator.
