Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network and Community Living Services have partnered in the development of a Person Centered Planning (PCP) and Individual Plan of Service (IPOS) training overviews for Clinically Responsible Service Providers in Wayne County.  Please join us for this distance learning opportunity on the ZOOM Platform. 


The type of supports people are asking for is changing, as are the funding and requirements for providing services is changing too. This presentation will focus on service providers adapting their service array and approaches to be more person-centered and person-directed in order to assist people in achieving outcomes valued by all members of society. “Getting great services” is obviously not the goal of our field of work -“GETTING A GREAT LIFE” is. This will be an interactive training session that aims to re-frame our views on service provision, with the goal of making our service systems as person-centered and community focused as possible. The presenter will utilize power point slides, short video clips, and active chat engagement with attendees via questions and answers. This training will focus on where we have been, and where we are going, as a service industry. Methods of helping people with developmental disabilities and mental health needs achieve active, rich, and respected lives as valued members of their community via very individualized Person-Centered Planning processes will be shared.  


1. Identify and emphasize attitudes that enhance the opportunities for persons with DD to achieve their optimal potential.
2. Discuss examples and strategies to promote community inclusion in meeting the needs of persons with developmental                  disabilities.
3. Make a compelling case for the need to make planning and service approaches more person-centered through exposure to          the history of the disability rights movement.
4. Cite the difference between “person-centered planning” and “Individual Plan of Service” development.


The trainings will be held on Thursday mornings from 9am to 11am via the ZOOM platform. There will be a single presenter with a power point presentation, short video clips, and active chat engagement with questions and answers. The presenter is skilled and experienced with on-line training methodologies.
