Person-Centered Recovery Planning

A person-centered approach supports individuals to drive their own recovery and encourages a holistic method of collaborative planning. Individualized recovery and service planning goes beyond the management of diagnosis and symptoms to more fully appreciate the importance of an individual’s valued cultural preferences, natural supports and recovery-based life role goals.

This skills-focused training will provide an overview of the core principles of recovery and service planning with a focus on the “nuts-and-bolts” of implementation from both a process and a documentation perspective.

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in interactive exercises where they will be able to put together the pieces of a quality plan that integrates assessments, life role goals, SMART objectives and skills-focused interventions that are needed to reach an individual’s recovery goals.

At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to:

  • discuss the flow of person-centered planning

  • articulate the difference between treatment goals and recovery goals

  • explain techniques for conducting assessments utilizing a recovery-oriented approach

  • use strengths-based, recovery-oriented language in documentation

  • construct the following elements of a person-center plan including: recovery-based life goals, SMART objectives, and measurable interventions (services)

  • identify tools and techniques to utilize for progress notes
