Universal Enhancement - Raising the Bar
In this thought provoking and inspiring presentation,
Dr. Tom Pomeranz describes why Universal
Enhancement is “universal.” Through lecture and
story-telling Tom moves the attendees toward an
understanding and acceptance of Universal
Enhancement allowing one to gain greater sensitivity
to the problems and opportunities for individuals
who are isolated and denigrated as a result of being
“seen” as different.
As a nationally acclaimed best practice, Universal
Enhancement is not a new invention; rather it is a
discovery. No one can claim exclusive rights to the
ideas and visions presented and advocated for in
Universal Enhancement. Universal Enhancement is
inspired by the valued and meaningful relationships
most individuals are fortunate to experience in life.
The ways we behave which facilitates the forming
of relationships are the “tools” of Universal
Enhancement, those tools are many and varied.
Tom details how Universal Enhancement seeks to
identify and capture the positive ways people
behave that facilitates the realization of meaningful
relationships. Additionally Universal Enhancement’s
foundation rests on a standard - its bedrock: “how
would I treat myself if I were similarly challenged.”
It is through one’s increased sensitivity and
empathy that those providing support, either as
family, friends or paid staff, promote opportunities
for a quality life.
Tom provides attendees with the strategies that can
be used in supporting people in possessing and
experiencing "things" of value in their lives: hobbies,
employment, education, religion and leisure pursuits
all promote a quality life. Through Universal
Enhancement applies to us all, outsiders and people
who are the targets of prejudice serve as the
primary subjects of the Universal Enhancement
discussion. One's intellectual disability, physical
disability, psychiatric disability, race or national
origin frequently results in being devalued or
challenged by society's myths and prejudices.
When placed in the right hands the tools of UE will
overcome the combined forces of ignorance,
arrogance, prejudice and fear which steals the lives
of its victims.
