IAN Self Advocacy Course – New Horizon

We are very fortunate to have the IAN running a self advocacy course in the centre at the moment. Here are two participant’s who are taking part in the programme’s experiences so far…

Self Advocacy is learning how to have better self-esteem, communication skills and how having the right people around you is helpful for better self-esteem. This is a six week course on Tuesday and Thursday.


In New Horizons we are doing a course in Self Advocacy. The facilitators are Jim and Una, who are very nice. It is a 6 week course over two days a week, on Tuesday and Thursday. We have covered what Self Advocacy is, communications, Self-Awareness and the Johari model, which is a useful tool for illustrating and improving Self Awareness. The aims and objectives of the course are to develop the learner’s skills and to enable them to speak up for themselves. There are twelve participants on the course. We hope to learn many more skills in Self Advocacy.
