The creation of authentic person-centered plans is dependent upon people feeling empowered to advocate for themselves, how they want to spend their days and the dreams they have for their lives. We are allies in their advocacy, and as facilitators of planning meetings it is necessary to ensure that peoples voices are heard. It is our responsibility to consistently role-model a person-centered process; one in which the person is not only considered at the center of the plan, but is the driver and executor of the plan. Join us to learn action steps for authentic person-centered planning, including   educating loved ones, caregivers and community on person-centered concepts and the importance of personal advocacy.

Learning objectives

Objective 1: Describe techniques to build and support a person-centered team that is diverse, innovative, and transformative.
Objective 2: Deepen understanding of person-centered concepts and the transformation process itself.
Objective 3: Learn practical ideas that can be adapted and implemented within any team.
