This training provides participants with an in depth working knowledge of Essential Lifestyle Planning. This is part of what is described in the guidance as the 'depth strategy'.
This is a four day course delivered over a 10-12 week period. The first two days are designed to provide participants with competency in using the person centred thinking skills. Participants will learn about person centred thinking tools and exercises that they can take away, share with their colleagues and begin to use straight away. Participants will develop their own one page profile over these two days.
The further two days will introduce 5 more person centred thinking tools, a person centred review process and facilitating/coaching - showing how we can grow one page profiles into essential lifestyle plans through a variety of methods. Day 3 of the course will take place approximately four weeks later and is designed to support participants to be able to grow the one page profile into an essential lifestyle plan, coach others to contribute to it, facilitate a person centred review and develop an essential lifestyle plan with somebody they support.
Day 4 of the course will take place approximately six weeks later and is designed to support participants by reflecting on the work they have done since the last day and share ideas on keeping the plan 'live', ensuring it makes an ongoing difference to the person. Further person centred thinking tools will be introduced on this day, we also reflect on what great essential lifestyle plans feature.
Participants will be required to complete work in between training days.
