Please register for Dispelling certain myths about Person Centered Planning on Jun 29, 2017 2:00 PM EDT at:
In this sobering yet entertaining webinar, Christopher Liuzzo will dispel certain myths about person centered planning. He will demonstrate that most of what passes for so called person centered planning is actually quite systems centered and designed to do the “system’s work.” He will explain why the emphasis on the techniques of person centered planning is overblown and far less important than understanding the “why’s” of person-centered work. He will discuss how DSP’s can better prepare themselves to contribute to meaningful planning processes. The webinar will include many real life examples from Chris’ extensive experience as an administrator, consultant and trainer in person centered work.
