As a result of an evolving working context where many are opting to deliver services online, a group of psychologists have come together to deliver a webinar series on online working. 

Webinar 1 – Person-Centred Thinking – Colin Newton, 8th April 7am Melbourne (7th April 10pm London, 11pm Paris, 5pm New York/Montreal)

At a time when assessment work may not be so feasible, there are many other ways to support clients. In this workshop we provide an overview of service centred thinking with person centred model approaches to planning. This may be perceived as an alternative to a medical model approach.

Person Centred Planning was first developed in the 1980’s by a small number of people including John O’Brien, Connie Lyle O’Brien, Beth Mount, Jack Pearpoint, Marsha Forest and Michael Smull. It was developed as a way of enabling people – children and adults – to move out of special segregated places schools, hospital and institutions into mainstream life – schools and communities. Person Centred Planning is built on the values of inclusion and looks at what support a person needs to be included and involved in their community.

Person centred approaches offer an alternative to traditional types of planning which are based upon the medical model of disability and which are set up to assess need, allocate services and make decisions for people. Person centred planning is rooted in the social model and aims to empower people who have traditionally been disempowered by ‘specialist’ or segregated services by handing power and control back to them.

This session will be graphically facilitated with a second presenter Elliot Newton. 20% reduction in book purchases for all participants joining this webinar. Simply email [email protected] with proof of attendance and we will send book and invoice details.
