“Person centred planning is a way of organising around one person to define and create a better future”


(Pete Richie, 2002)

About this course


In just over an hour this Person Centred Thinking training gives 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 person centred thinking tools training is not to teach people how to facilitate plans but instead it is about sharing a set of values and an orientation that can be used to listen, reflect and creatively involve people in planning their own lives.

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

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 Elliot 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!'
