Person Centered Recovery Planning: A Taster


How do the principles of Person Centered Recovery Planning (PCRP) play out in our everyday decision-making? In this FREE 90-min session, participants will work in small groups to explore a scenario that challenges us to put person-centered values into action. This session is geared toward anyone working in behavioral health care and provides a sample of the 2-day PCRP workshop. 

Purpose and Audience

This workshop is designed for participants that work in a variety of roles within their organizations.  It will benefit individual participants as they explore the application of the practice, rather than prepare them for full organizational implementation. This session is not a prerequisite for other PCRP workshops but is complementary to all other PCRP offerings and provides a sampling of our 2-day workshop. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the fundamental principles of Person Centered Recovery Planning.
  • Apply person centered principles to a real life scenario or challenge.
  • Identify at least 1 action to take following this training that furthers person-centered practices at their organization.
