      Though it is hard to find anyone these days who is not in favour of the goals of person centredness and individualisation, it is striking how many people being supported in such arrangements do not reach their potentials in life. Part of this kind of shortcoming arises from many faulty assumptions about what it actually takes to enable people to have good lives. This, in turn, is also influenced by the the inability of many to turn goals into actual practices that make a difference. Fortunately, much of this kind of practice can be learned and eventually mastered to some degree, but only if such opportunities are made available to people. This session will look at many quality challenges and indicate what has been achieved already as well as what remains to be achieved.
