ATTENTION MINNESOTA PROVIDERS:The Minnesota Department of Human Services is committed to having person-centered practices and services available to everyone who receives disability, mental health, and aging services and supports. Through a partnership between DHS and STAR Services, FREE ENROLLMENT in The Foundations of Person-Centered Planning is available to develop person-centered plan facilitators throughout the state. After completing this development program, selected applicants are expected to enroll to provide person-centered planning as a service through waiver and Moving Home Minnesota funding. Applications are accepted through October 16, 2023. Learn more about this special opportunity >>

All people interested in Person-Centered Planning should have a box full of planning tools. These tools can empower people to make change in their lives by putting them in charge of defining their direction.

The Foundations of Person-Centered Planning is a four month series designed to teach important planning methods and skills. They include MAPS, PATH, Liberty Plans, Solutions Circles, building community capacity using Learning Journey, Person-Centered Thinking discovery, and more.

The process starts with a six session extensive facilitation foundation and will continue to build momentum with group mentoring sessions. Plan facilitation can be a bit intimidating in the beginning, and this series allows you to learn and practice, while receiving expert guidance from experienced plan facilitators.

This course will also discuss how planning can provide direction to the team and help to meet your licensing requirements in a more meaningful way. Join us for this comprehensive Person-Centered Planning program and fully realize your facilitation potential to help people define the direction of their lives.
