Person-Centered Thinking, Planning and Doing: A Human Approach to Direct Support
Person-Centered Thinking is a set of values, skills, and tools that puts the person at the center of every aspect of life. It is not a plan or a form, but a process through which each person:
- thinks about experiences he/she wants to have in life or the goals he/she wants to accomplish
- takes time to discover and learn about those experiences and goals
- develops a plan to have those life experiences or reach those goals and;
- acts on that plan (with the support of others)
Through this process, each person is able to create a plan that is meaningful to them and create a life of their choosing; not the system's choosing. After all, any service or support should be about the person first!
Participants will explore all aspects of Person-Centered Thinking, Planning and Doing. This is an interactive training that will provide guidance, experience, and tools to illustrate the person-centered planning process involved in authentic direct support.
