September 2021 CISS Seminar - "Don't Patronize Me!"

Next Seminar: Wednesday, September 8, 2021 @ 5pm - 7pm (Virtual via ZOOM)

Topic: Respectful Communication

In this session, we will look at some of the interactions that people with developmental disabilities experience in the community.  We will discuss the ways our beliefs influence our behavior and the language we use.  And we will hear (via video) from people with disabilities and the people who support them.

Presenter:  Terri Nelson, CISS Training Manager 


Respite Caregivers who are actively employed are invited to attend up to three paid monthly staff trainings per year (within their maximum 40 hours per week allowed). Once they have attended three trainings in a calendar year, they may choose to attend more sessions on a voluntary, unpaid basis if there is room in each class. Trainings will be offered online via Zoom until further notice.

Reservations are REQUIRED. Staff are allowed to attend up to 3 sessions per calendar year. Registration for training is required due to limited slots. Our Annual All Staff meeting does NOT count toward the 3 sessions.

If you RSVP and then find out you can no longer attend please log in to the SignUpGenius system to delete your RSVP, or call our office at (805) 384-0983 x0 for assistance or to leave us a message about why you cannot attend. Frequent absences to trainings cost the organization time and money and will not be tolerated. Staff who no-show may be disciplined including, but not limited to, being prohibited from attending further seminars.

ZOOM Meeting will start at 5:00pm Each training will start on time at 5:00PM. The waiting room will open at 4:45 if you wish to join early.

Upcoming training calendar will be available soon...

Payroll Note: These trainings are open to all of our active staff who will be reimbursed at their base pay rates for the traditional respite program.
