Person-Centered Thinking Training

The Council is making Person-Centered Thinking (PCT) training available to Idahoans, or those who work in Idaho.  Training covers skills that help you get to know people, discover how to support them and keep learning from the person along the way.

This training is a virtual, six-part series.  Each session is three (3) hours, with two (2) sessions per week.  You will receive a Zoom link and materials before the training starts. The training will focus on:

  • PCT Discovery Skills: helping us better know the person and how they want to be supported
  • PCT Everyday Learning Skills: capturing ongoing learning and support for the person to create a life they envision
  • Respectful Support Skills: addressing issues of health and safety from different viewpoints and empowering the person to maintain control

The training provides an opportunity to work with the tools individually and with learning partners. Come prepared to get hands-on! Not only will you learn about person-centered thinking tools; you will make connections with people from all over Idaho.

  • Your camera is vital to making the training all it can be. A webcam is a requirement for this training.
  • You will receive 14 PCT tool templates that you can use right away & a certificate of completion of 18 training hours.
