You may not attend the Day 2 without attending Day 1.  


Participants will develop skills in person-centered thinking through a series of discussions, applied stories, and guided exercises. You will leave with a foundation for person centered planning.

Person Centered Thinking (PCT) is the first and fundamental training providing participants with the basic knowledge on how to facilitate the use of the skills and tools to support others. Participants will develop their own descriptions using the skills and tools. Changing your thinking is the first step to person centered planning.

This training offers 12-hours of learning and practicing how to use a variety of skills to discover information to support someone to have a better life.

The skills offer specific methods to discover information that identifies what is important to a person and what is important for a person. It is this discovery process that leads to finding the balance between important to and for which serves as the basis to create a description of a person that leads to action planning. The tools of discovery were developed by Michael Smull and the Learning Community to support people to get better lives…not just better plans.
