Person-Centered Training Services With a Mindful Approach
Ensure the Best Support Beginning with How You Think
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.
Person-Centered Practices are rooted in Person-Centered Thinking (PCT), which helps others to gain and keep a positive and correct response to the person. It promotes the all-important balance of what is Important TO and FOR the person.
And remember, person-centeredness is not just for those with IDD. It applies to anyone who, for any reason, has lost ownership or positive control over their lives. When supports are needed from others, person-centered approaches help ensure the person stays in control of their life as much as possible.
