Course calendar

In our perception CBR staff should be creative problem solvers, being able to create out-of-the-box solutions for problems met in the field. We enhance reflective reasoning skills in our trainings, building on the experiential learning cycle. We offer both regular and tailor-made courses in Community Based Rehabilitation. Our regular courses usually consist of 2 weeks of training. Tailor-made courses can be established for different durations, in different settings and with different objectives.

Enablement Nepal Training Courses: 

1. Evolutions in CBR and Inclusive Development

Since its onset in the early eighties, Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) has evolved considerably. A paradigm shift is noted from mainly a medical to a more human rights model on disability, which connects CBR with mainstream development strategies. Nowadays CBR and Disability Inclusive Development (DID) are complementary approaches to pursue the same goal: develop disability inclusive societies. During this training, you will be introduced to the state-of-the-art developments in CBR and DID, building upon the WHO CBR Guidelines, the ICF and the UNCRPD. This course is a highly practical course, which focuses on the development of competencies in for instance context and needs analysis, project management including attention for monitoring and evaluation; community mobilisation, networking; lobby and advocacy. Yet, while there will be strong focus on the interventions that are needed to make society more disability inclusive, sufficient time will be allocated to review the importance of the individual needs and challenges as well.
