The Art & Soul of Person-Centered Planning
June 6 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Person-Centered planning can mean many things in different contexts. When practice aligns with original intention, everyday expectations and experiences change for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other community members. The places where a person engages move away from human service settings to typical community places. The range of choice and self-determination increases. They fill more and more valued social roles and grow in their capacity to explore, discover and act from a place of authenticity and purpose in life.
This half-day interactive session will be situated within a framework of exploration, inquiry, listening, and relative practice designed to ” make the invisible visible” through words, colors, and images. Participants will touch the strings of the ‘art and soul’ of person-centered planning through a delightful exchange of conversation and graphic facilitation.
This session is intended for anyone interested in understanding how person-centered planning and graphic facilitation should be practiced to achieve outcomes of community inclusion and valued social roles. This includes, but is not limited to, people with disabilities, family members, direct support professionals and other service providers, administrators and regulators of disability service programs.
RSVP by May 30 to Kelly Gremba at 412-299-2231 or Merakey_AVS@merakey.org. Space is Limited.
