Training Overview Description

Person-centered counseling (PCC) allows individuals to be engaged in the decision making process about their options, preferences, values, and financial resources. Individuals in need of services or who are planning for the future have access to one-on-one counseling in a variety of settings, including within the home, community residence, acute care hospital, school settings, or several other settings based on the individual's needs.
PCC is a valuable tool for the aging and disability networks that can improve access to care through streamlined partnerships, technology, and resources that put the focus on the needs of people and their caregivers.
A person-centered system recognizes that every individual is unique and the system must be able to respond flexibly to each individual's situation, strengths, needs and preferences. Person-Centered Counseling is centered on the individual and their personal goals and desires, and is much broader in scope than any formal assessment or eligibility determination process tied to a public or private program.
