Person-Centered Training Services With a Mindful Approach
Person-Centered Thinking goes beyond a mindset.
It's a skill set.
Changing how we think is essential to achieving Person-Centered Practices. If people are going to gain or regain positive control over their lives, then those supporting the person need to have a person-centered approach and mindset. This begins with how we think.
Person-Centered Thinking is the foundational mindset that enables those who support others to deliver services that are organized and consistent with Person-Centered Practices.
Person-Centered Practices represent the ideal methodology of delivering services and supports that respect the person’s autonomy and promotes a life of their own choosing in their own community
Whether it is because of a disability from birth, accident, or just the aging process, at some point, we may all need support from others. However, this can lead to a loss of positive control or autonomy in our lives. Person-Centered Practices help ensure the person remains the focus of these supports. We all want to retain our autonomy. We want a life of our choosing, lived out in a place of our choosing, surrounded by people of our choosing.
