Decisions for Life develops and presents a variety of trainings and workshops for professionals whose daily work involves substitute decision-making. Depending on the profession, it can be critically important for individuals to understand the different types of substitute decision-making allowed under Iowa law; recognize when a client may be in need of substitute decision-making services; be aware of how the roles of the substitute decision maker and ward may evolve over time; or recognize the warning signs of an abusive or exploitative relationship between the substitute decision maker and the ward.

No group is too large or too small. Decisions for Life will meet with you to plan a training program with expected outcomes for participants, create content and case scenarios relevant to your
