Person-Centered Thinking Facilitator / Advisor Training

Rhode Island is in the process of expanding and refining Person-Centered practices throughout the state. One of the most important components of Person-Centered Thinking is the Facilitator who advises and assists the person to actively participate in developing a plan for all domains of their life. A work group of people who have a developmental disability, family members, advocates and service providers has developed the "Rhode Island Person-Centered Thinking Guide" available below. This Guide is the basis of the 18-hour training that will assist any interested person (who has real life experience with adolescents and/or adults who have developmental disabilities) to become a better facilitator and advisor. A brief outline of the core components of the Person-Centered Thinking process is also available below.
