In this two-day interactive training, participants will learn the fundamental Person-Centered Thinking skills. Person-Centered Thinking gives participants the tools they need to incorporate person-centered philosophies in their organization. In addition, these tools put in to action why most of us chose the human services field: to help people live their best life. These skills provide specific approaches which teach us how to listen intentionally to the people we support and act on what we have learned. The tools respectfully address issues of health and safety, from a variety of perspectives, while empowering the person to maintain control. You will practice developing a Person-Centered Description, which communicates to us how the person wants to be supported and can help the person live the life they desire. If your organization has a 245D license, please note this course includes key tools that help meet some of the person-centered requirements for which licensors are monitoring.
This training is designed for lead agency staff, staff at all levels in an organization as well as individuals who receive support and families.
