Implementing Person – Centred Practices – Level One

Do you want people who use services to have positive control over their lives? If people are to have self-directed lives within their communities, then those people who support them on a daily basis need to have person-centred thinking skills. Presenters from Helen Sanderson Associates and Tautoko Support Services will deliver this internationally recognised training. The workshop is open to anyone in the sector wishing to learn about person-centred practices.
