Supported Decision Making, Guardianship, and APS: What’s Choice Got to Do With It?

Source: APS Technical Assistance Resource Center

Published: 2019

Summary:

There are no studies proving people are safer under guardianship, but many show the benefits of self-determination in avoiding and reducing maltreatment of vulnerable adults. Supported Decision Making recognizes that all people need help in making decisions; this session will discuss approaches that APS workers can use to address vulnerabilities while supporting a person’s decision making, reducing unnecessary guardianships.
