Event description
This training is for external health professionals & social care support workers who require a basic understanding of Person centred practice and tools used to support people in their care.

• We will discuss and share ideas and experiences of person-centred practice – how does it differ from other approaches?
• We will become familiar with and try out a range of published person-centred thinking tools which can be used within other care planning/support planning frameworks.
• We will discuss the balance which is often needed between what is important to a person and what is important for them.
• We will become familiar with two published ‘person-centred planning’ tools, Essential Lifestyle Planning and PATH.
• We will identify personal attitudes, values and particular practice skills which support person-centred practice. What does it mean to ‘be’ person-centred when supporting someone else and helping them to plan?
• We will practice communication skills which are identified as useful in person-centred practice.
