Person Centred Care and Empowerment
Being person-centred assumes that an individual can determine their own direction in life – based on their own strengths, abilities, networks and preferences to meet a range of goals throughout their life. This course is all about making sure that a client is at the centre of all decisions and actions that relate to their life and any support required. The person requesting or requiring support is the ‘driver’, rather than the organisation providing the support. It is important to empower clients as empowerment further enables people to represent their own interests in a responsible and self-determined way.
