The Power Of Language: A Movement

Shannon Wiebe has served people with disabilities and their families since 1990. She began working at Creative Options Regina (COR) in 2018 in the role of Mentorship and Outreach. Before COR, she had the privilege of planning with families as the Coordinator with Regina Residential Services Co-management Committee for 18 years. A Certified Gentle Teaching Master Mentor, Shannon has been instrumental in promoting Gentle Teaching at COR and across Saskatchewan, having worked closely with John McGee and Tim Jones. 

Shannon’s favourite part of her role is that her days are filled with many different and meaningful opportunities to connect with others, including spending time with the people COR supports, their families, and everyone else within the COR family. She is dedicated to helping others but also cherishes spending time with her family, especially her two granddaughters.

Program Description

In this session I will be sharing the importance of language. The power of language and how it shapes our attitudes which influences our actions. If we want to see cultural change, language is where it all begins. We will talk about Gentle Teaching language and how we can empower those we support to become in the driver’s seat of their life. Shifting our language can bring hope and is more powerful than we realize.
