Person Centered Planning and Natural Supports
Using the person's or family's language or terms in the person-centered plan is not permissible. Language must reflect the jargon and language of the profession.
Transparency includes talking about safety and well-being.
Person-Centered Planning and Family-Centered Planning build on strengths, gifts, contributions, and community inclusion.
Supports and resources do not include faith-based and spiritual community.
Pre-planning meetings must occur and deep, meaningful discussions are held about what the person or family wants for their life.
It is important to use coping questions to reveal the person's or family's skills and abilities and show the efforts they have made.
Person-Centered Plans and Person-Centered Planning/Family-Centered Planning should be strength-based.
A person's or family's culture does not play a role in the planning decision-making process.
Effective communication skills can include: being honest and genuine when interacting; listening and remaining interested; acknowledging the person's or family's strengths and focusing on recovery and resilience.
A "family" can include birth family, extended family, step family, tribe, adoptive family or any number of members defined by the family itself.
