Introduction to Person- and Family-Centered Thinking

As part of orientation to MNLEND year, each Fellow will also participate in a late-August interactive two-day shortened introductory training in person- and family-centered practices. Fellows will learn how thinking in a person- and family-centered manner is essential to ensuring supports and services are meaningful to people's long-term quality of life, health, and well-being. 

An optional official 16-hour training, with a completion certificate, will later be offered if interested, at cost. The full training could provide the opportunity to learn and practice more specific skills and tools that aid the discovery of what is important to and for families and individuals to lead the lives they want.  Ask Leadership Team member Emma Jackson for more information about this option.
