To engage in person-centered practices, including person-centered planning, it is essential to see the whole person. This whole person view must include acknowledgment and consideration of a person’s life experiences, which may – and often do – include experiences of trauma. Person-centered practices and trauma-informed approaches share key values, including collaboration, mutual trust, informed choice, and empowerment. However, we lack the tools to apply trauma-informed principles to the person-centered planning process, and to intentionally engage in trauma-informed person-centered practices. This webinar will explore the intersection of trauma and person-centered thinking, planning, and practice. It will emphasize actionable steps people can take to ensure that we consider trauma when we engage in person-centered thinking, planning, and practices.
