CQL Social Capital Seminar in Missouri

Leveraging Social Capital To Improve Quality of Life

Social capital involves the connections people create and the resulting trust, reliance, and reciprocity that comes out of those relationships. Especially in the human services system, there are distinct benefits for supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, older adults, and youth to build social capital in their life.

CQL's valid and reliable data tells us that people with disabilities are 51 times more likely to perform social roles when organizational supports are in place. Despite this fact, only 33% of people are supported by organizations to perform social roles.

To assist agencies in understanding, identifying, and improving social capital, CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership is conducting a one-day seminar about Social Capital on June 14th, 2018 in Bridgeton, Missouri.

CQL Social Capital Seminar


In this seminar, we’re revealing what social capital is, why it’s important, and how to support people in building social capital. We’ll share examples of people moving beyond being in the community, to actually being a part of the community. Attendees will leave with specific strategies to support people in establishing connections, nurturing relationships, and living better lives. We will ground these concepts in valid and reliable research, presenting data that demonstrates the value of social capital. This seminar is designed for direct support professionals, front-line supervisors, other professional staff, and organizational leadership.
