PERSON CENTERED THINKING

HCBS Compliance is a considerable transition for many programs.

 

TASC can help your program meet all requirements with best practices and trainings. 

The official Person Centered Thinking (PCT) training for agencies and staff is offered by a certified instructor of the Learning Community in a two-day, in-person series or an 18-hour Zoom series.

 

Participants in the training will develop skills in person-centered thinking through a series of discussions, applied stories, and guided exercises. Participants will leave with a foundation for person centered planning practices and the ability to successfully implement in your agency.

PCT training is designed for employees of all levels, as well as people supported and their family members. All training instructors are certified by the Learning Community for Person Centered Practices.

Families report that person centered thinking tools help them think about what is important to their family member and assists them in formulating a plan to access supports and services.

When applied to an organizational setting, person centered thinking becomes a process of building and sustaining an organizational culture rooted in principles of developing employees, encouraging engagement and making decisions that are aligned with values of respect, trust and partnership.
