and Coach Training
The most trusted and leading resource in
Person-Centered Skills Training.
Person-Centered Thinking skills and techniques are 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 utilize a skilled, person-centered approach to delivering support.
Person-Centered Thinking Training
Available on-site at your location or virtually via Zoom
Great for: All staff, particularly management staff and case managers
Duration: 3 days virtual or 2 days on-site
The staff you hire rarely come with an awareness of how to be person-centered.
Consider what it would look like if your staff, newly hired or a long-time veteran, were specially trained in how to intertwine person-centered approaches into their everyday work to support the person. What if this was just how they did their job?
Graduates are also trained in how to accurately complete the Person-Centered Description (PCD). An accurate PCD can drastically improve the services and supports of the person as well as improve quality of life.
- Gain a proper perspective of the person
- Find that often elusive balance of what is Important To and For the person
- Ensure that what is learned about the person is properly recorded and built upon
Become a Person-Centered Coach
Great for: Management, supervisors, proficient PCT supporters
Duration: 6-8 months
Prerequisites: Coach Candidates must complete the Person-Centered Thinking Training and be trained with a partner.
Keeping the momentum of your person-centered efforts going is not always easy.
A lot of things compete for time and focus. Having key staff specifically trained to support, propel, and enhance this momentum is vital. Staff often need help using or implementing person-centered practices effectively. This is where having your own Person-Centered Coaches on-hand can be of immense value.
- Help staff develop and incorporate Person-Centered Descriptions into annual plans and daily support efforts
- Provide technical support
- Gain and keep the person-centered momentum in your agency
