Person Centered Care for Behavioral Health: Are We There Yet?

Person-centered care is becoming a mantra and a mandate for Minnesota’s mental health and substance abuse providers. While an important philosophical paradigm shift, it can be difficult and confusing to put person-centered care into practice. This webinar helps practitioners begin to bridge the gap between person-centered principles and practice by introducing key person-centered concepts and application tools.

Participants will be able to:

  • Distinguish between person-centered care and traditional treatment approaches for
    mental health
  • Identify the core principles of person-centered care
  • Understand several key skills, tools, and strategies needed for person-centered
    care treatment planning
  • Discuss misperceptions that impede the adoption and application of person-
    centered care for mental health
