Person Centred Planning using PATH

March 16 - 09:30 to March 17 - 15:30


DAY 1 only = £185.00; additional pricing can be found on the event website.

Join us for 1 or for 2 days ‘hands on’ training about Person Centred Planning in this intriguing Jazz venue in the heart of Nottingham City. We explore the values, tools and processes that can be used with a person not done to or for them. PATH is a respectful planning process that focuses on capacity and contribution. PATH is not simply a ‘SEND’ process, it can be used successfully with disabled or challenging children, young people or adults in a range of situations.

What we will cover:

DAY 1:

  • An overview of the values of person centred practice: we will emphasise the power of the Dream to give a sense of direction and purpose: the search for capacity as the guiding premise of planning with PATH; the role of natural supports in committing to the plan and making it happen; the building of relationships and connections as key ingredients of planning with PATH; the importance of graphics to bring the dream into view; the importance of ‘ordinary needs’ being met in planning for a good life; the person and their family and friends at the centre of the planning.
  • Graphic and Process Facilitation: a detailed breakdown of the skills needed to facilitate the process (ask the questions) and graphic the group’s responses.
  • A live demonstration of the PATH process: witness the full PATH process facilitated with a member of the training group.

DAY 2:

  • In-depth coaching on both the process and graphic facilitation aspects of using PATH. There will be opportunities to try out new skills with supportive coaching in a safe and nurturing environment and a full exploration of your ‘What If?’ questions

The training will be run by Colin Newton and Derek Wilson whose work on Inclusion, Person Centred Planning, Creating Circles of Friends and Circle of Adults is internationally valued. You can opt to attend for Day 1 only or attend for both days

For those attending for both days, Colin and Derek are happy to offer email support and coaching over time to individuals as they begin to facilitate PATHs in the course of their work. A free copy of our recent Book: ‘Person Centred Planning Together’ (2016) will also be given to those attending for 2 days.
