Community Living Winnipeg is about bringing people together to achieve the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in all aspects of community.

Our long history began in the 1950s when families began gathering in their homes or church basements to build services for their children in the community. Over the past six decades our organization has worked with families to ensure their sons and daughters receive excellent services that promote quality of life and equal status with other citizens.

This year we celebrate our 55th anniversary committed to building welcoming communities where everyone is included.

Supporting People with Difficult Behaviours in Ordinary, Everyday Places with David Pitonyak

April 13-17, 2015 and May 11-15, 2015
9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Canadian Mennonite University
500 Shaftesbury Boulevard Winnipeg, MB

This training is designed to build capacity within an organization or community to deliver and sustain respectful and positive approaches to difficult behaviours. The training requires participation in all nine days and a variety of “homework” assignments to test newly acquired skills in real world places.

About David Pitonyak, Ph.D.

David Pitonyak is interested in positive approaches to difficult behaviours. He believes that difficult behaviours are “messages” which can tell us important things about a person and his/her surroundings. Understanding the “meaning” of an individual’s difficult behaviours is the first step in supporting the person (and the person’s supporters) to change.

David has provided consultation and training for individuals, families, professionals throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, England, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland. He has worked with people in a variety of settings, including home and professionally-staffed residential settings, schools, supported competitive jobsites, sheltered workshops, and day activity programs.
