The State Guardianship Training Project is a collaboration with the Department of Aging and Independent Living, Division of Guardianship, to host online training courses. This two-year grant provides funding for the development of approximately 40 training courses for Division of Guardianship staff. Supervisors will assign coursework to staff based on professional learning needs, and will monitor and evaluate staff progress using reports available through the HDI Online Learning Center.

“Guardianship has been the default option for people who “need protection” for centuries. It’s time to rethink that option. There are people who have a legitimate need for a guardian; however, many other people could be better served by simply getting some support to make decisions. Supported decision-making is being utilized across the globe both as an alternative to guardianship and as a way to increase self-determination for all people with disabilities and older adults.” – Laura Butler
