Issue 16 - August 2013

Periodical 16 - Decision Making

  • Given that our lives are full of decisions that shape our lives and identity it's difficult to imagine that someone else would make decisions for us - substituting their views on how they think our life should look. This issue of “Thinking About...” recognises the importance of decision-making in our lives and urges us to reconsider the historical practice of substituted decision making in the lives of people with a disability. It also offers suggestions about how to support people, even with profound disabilities, to make decisions about their lives. Authors include Michael Kendrick, Piers Gooding, Orville Endicott, Jo Watson, Jeffery Strully and John Armstrong.

Belonging Matters respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land the Wurrundjeri people of the Kulin nation, and we pay our respect to their Elders both past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander visitors are warned that this site may contain images/voices of deceased persons which may be distressing for some people.
