Frontline Initiative: Person-Centered Practices

Description

A newsletter issue for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) exploring person-centered practices. This issue of Frontline Initiative brought together voices on what has been happening in this work around the country. Person-Centered Thinking is a dynamic skill that considers how a person truly wants to direct their lives. People who receive services are often expected to conform and fit into routines and procedures set up by service providers or caregivers. But current service standards, which include state and federal requirements, are providing more room for person-centered practices. Person-centered practices are at the forefront as services shift away from a system-centered focus.
