People who facilitate person-centered planning play a key-role in ensuring a person-centered system. For the planning process to be truly person-centered, it is critical that staff who facilitate person-centered planning possess the skills to: keep the focus on the person, cultivate connections, maximize choice and control, communicate clearly, and make sure the plan is implemented according to the person’s wishes. In this panel discussion, experts with a variety of backgrounds will share their experiences with person-centered planning and highlight the competencies they think are most important. This webinar is a companion to a recently published National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Practices and Systems (NCAPPS) resource, Five Competency Domains for Staff Who Facilitate Person-Centered Planning.
