MHLEB

Professor Belinda Dewar OBE visited Adelaide last week where she worked with 14 participants to further develop their facilitation skills to run My Home Life Australia led by the South Australia innovation hub – http://sainnovationhub.org/

Gareth Norman CEO from Bundalear is keen to develop the recently launched LIEE (learning and innovating from everyday excellence) programmes at UWS as part of their new Centre at Bundaleer. Bundaleer provides independent living, residential care, home care and respite services. They are based on the New South Wales Mid-North Coast in the regional town of Wauchope.

Gareth said:

“My Home Life provides an extraordinary approach to the way we relate to others every day, especially through the effective use of emotional connections.  By being appreciative and focused on relationships as part of the development of better practice, we can realise, for example, that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own, and begin to understand the language, connotations, and images that we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.

Through the MHL methodology, we can together consider different approaches to engagement; following the framework of have caring and considered conversations, we can support people to be courageous and curious, and connect emotionally and purposefully to what matters.  The MHL methodology connects the conscious and subconscious mind, to together collaborate and celebrate achievements.”
