This training is for staff in all service systems working with adults, adolescents, children and families. Historically, client plans were traditionally focused on objectives established by the system directly involved with the client. Person Centered Planning turns the focus away from the system and places it on the individual. Strengths, preferences, and an individualized system of support are identified to assist the individual with an emotional or behavioral challenges to achieve functional, meaningful goals and objectives.

You will leave this training with an energized, human rights focus knowing:
• How to start the conversation with clients from a Person Centered, strengths-based approach
• How to use Person Centered engagement tools with those who are challenged by trust issues and the care planning needed to help them move forward in healing
• How to implement this approach into your treatment planning work

Learning Objectives:
1. Explain strength-based service approach and the history of Person Centered planning;
2. Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of the individual in care planning;
3. Evaluate the differences between traditional treatment planning, and the benefits and individualized process of Person Centered planning;
4. Gain a fresh perspective on your role with the client;
5. Engage with your client(s) immediately with a Person Centered approach, and implement this skill into your treatment planning;
