The Person Centred Mindset is about having a new way of looking at planning combined with a set of tools to help support dreams, build relationships and connections and promote capacity thinking. The aim of the extreme person centred thinking tools training is not to teach people how to facilitate plans but instead it is about sharing tools that can be used to listen, reflect and creatively involve people in planning their own lives.

This mindset works great with MAPSPATH, and all other person centred thinking tools.

Learning Objectives:

This course will provide participants with an understanding of how to use a range of extreme person centred thinking tools to;

  • Use graphics to facilitate creative conversations
  • Learn from people’s stories and histories
  • Listen to and facilitate dreams and nightmares
  • Think about what is positive and possible
  • Connect people with their communities
  • Facilitate inclusion

Hi, I’m Colin Newton - Psychologist and Director at Inclusive Solutions.

I've spent my career committed to inclusive education and have run many PATH and MAP sessions for over 20 years. I still love this unique approach and am sure you will too. I was privileged to learn this way of working directly from the creators Jack Pearpoint, Marsha Forest and John O'Brien.

Person centred planning approach that really works!

'I have really enjoyed the webinars that Inclusive Solutions have delivered. They are very informative and help open our eyes to the topic that is being covered. The technical set up of the webinars is very well put together and runs seamlessly. Colin and Elliott are both brilliant speakers and keep the audience interested and engaged. I like the idea of going out into break out rooms as it gives people the chance to reflect on what has been addressed in the webinar. Thanks so much!'
