  • Service Delivery: Empowerment and Advocacy in Information and Referral

    Product not yet rated Contains 9 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Information and Referral is about much more than providing the “I” (Information) and the “R” (Referral). It is about empowering people to help themselves both now and in future situations; while it is sometimes also about advocating for people who are not currently able to help themselves. Empowerment and advocacy are fundamental principles of I&R. This interactive course is for Information & Referral (I&R) Specialists who handle human service inquiries from the public and the supervisors who oversee this essential work. The course describes the nature of empowerment (helping people to help themselves) and advocacy (when people really need additional support) within the context of I&R.
