Event Details

CRUcial Conversation: Virtues, Values and Better Lives

CRU often talks about values that guide our thoughts and behaviour; virtues are similar but are the things that are universally valued by all.
Virtues are ‘strengths of character’ we all possess that add to the uniqueness of who we are. We use many virtues in our everyday such as, trust, honesty, integrity, and respect.
In this informal, interactive session Penny will discuss:

  • The use of the five strategies from the Virtues Project 
  • How this approach can assist in developing ‘right relationships’ when working alongside people with disability
  • How the recognition of our strengths can provide us with a greater understanding of ourselves and of others

About the Presenter:


Penny Sampson is passionate about assisting people to have better lives. Penny first came across the Virtues Project in the mid-1990s when she was working as a Manager within the Disability Sector.
She immediately saw its potential in supporting people to have better lives; in enhancing relationships with staff and in planning with people with a disability.
Penny has worked with CRU over the past three years in the Participant Readiness project.
