 – With the group complete the good day and bad day exercise and share your results.
– Highlight how different we are and how we make adaptions to support, how this can also be helpful for dreaming because it highlights the likes and what makes the person happy.

Gosia Kwiatkowska is now going to explain to you in more detail some of these different tools and ways of working for person centred planning.

Are you thinking about how you actively enable the person you support or know to stay in charge and in control of their life? How well do we truly empower the person we know? Or have you seen learnt helplessness? What about the suggestion of starting with what we like and admire about the person, what would the person you support say about you if they could? What did you think of the Path tool? Would this be useful for you?
