David Wetherow has been one of my heroes for a long time, and when my facilitation partner Shelley Nessman and I got a chance to work with him we were delighted. David and Faye are important elders in the Community Living movement in B.C. and in North America who have contributed hugely… his new ideas are so exciting that after a period of absence he’s been compelled to come out and “play in the sandbox.” We started with a planning session with the Family Support Institute (you can see the videos
and here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sIrkP_B7h8).
By the end of the day I was so excited about working more with him and so was Shelley. An opportunity came up to work with he and the Family Support Institute on a new variation of the PATH planning model which he’s calling “The Star Raft.” Here are three graphics, the first two done at TASH in Long Beach during his presentation there, and the last one done with a group of families who are embarking on the Star Raft.
