PATH Facilitator Training is an intense, active, three-day experience in which participants learn the basics of Person-Centered Planning. Event registration includes breakfast and lunch as well as a PATH kit containing all necessary materials.  

20 hours of CEU/CPDUs are offered.


Past participants have said:

"This was by far one of the most meaningful and useful trainings I’ve attended!"

"Changed my life. I will do things differently in my work, and in my life now. Thank you!"

"Everyone who has a desire to assist individuals with disabilities would benefit from this training!"

When people first learn about PATH, they tend to think of it as a planning tool -- after all, that's part of the title:  Planning Alternative Futures with Hope (Pearpoint, O'Brien & Forest, 1995).  If they are involved in supporting people with disabilities, they are likely to be interested in the prospect of colorful, engaging, positively-oriented alternative to traditional individual program planning, education planning, and service planning process.  


PATH is certainly a powerful planning tool, but in addition, and, perhaps even more importantly, it is a very powerful tool for invitation, community-building and commitment-building.
