Wednesday Keynote

Michael Smull, Support Development Associates LLC, Annapolis, MD

From Person Centered to Person Directed


What is the difference between person centered and person directed?  In a person centered system people have person directed lives, they have positive control over their lives?  How do we start to move in this direction and what can we do to keep moving?  In his keynote Michael Smull shows how we can use person centered thinking skills to learn what is important to each person and act on that learning.  He will show us the actions we can take immediately and make the changes needed to have person directed services the rule rather than the exception?
