DSP Team Meetings

Team Meetings take place the last Wednesday of each month at 8 am, 12 pm, and 4 pm. Meetings take about an hour and include news and updates, a brief training, and time for discussion. Light refreshments provided.


Upcoming 2018 DSP Training Dates

July 25- HOARDING: Hoarding isn't actually a fascinating reality tv show.  It's a serious mental illness and deserves compassion and understanding. Special guests from Lawrence Humane Society will also address hoarding of pets. (And because this is a truly serious topic, maybe we can get them to bring a few pets to cuddle, too!)
Aug. 29- ADDICTION: Join TIHC resident expert John Pryor, experienced addiction counselor, to discuss the path to-- and the path from-- addiction. 
Sept. 26- DSP Tips and Tricks: We want to hear from YOU!  Our Direct Support Professionals (aka YOU) are the experts in your field. You can share your expertise and tips for success with each other, discuss mutual challenges and offer ideas for TIHC's improvements as an organization.
