  2. Taught the audience how to engage a participant in a discussion while respecting participant choice within the context of informed risk-taking

Though open to all, this webinar is designed for individuals who work with persons with disabilities, particularly care coordinators in AAA’s, disability resource centers, and demonstration health plans.
