Description

This course covers the core principles and practices of comprehensive person-centered recovery planning (PCP), and how this differs from traditional models of care. The focus of the presentation is on the “nuts-and-bolts” of quality implementation and includes a review of key indicators of PCP from both a process and a documentation perspective.  The course includes a mix of didactic and experiential-based strategies to support participants in writing goals, objectives, and interventions that respect strengths-based, person-centered principles while also satisfying expectations associated with clinical, accreditation, and fiscal regulations. Practical strategies for leaders, practitioners, and persons in recovery are shared throughout as a way to stimulate the adoption of person-centered planning across all levels of the service system.
