PERSON-CENTERED DIRECT SUPPORT CD-ROM

Powerpoint/Quicktime slide show presentation, ideal resource for enabling person-centered direct support workers.

With accompanying Fold-Out/Poster
(see below)


$25.00

$20.00


People who rely on personal assistants need workers who find meaning in offering service in person-centered ways. A sense of meaning increases the chances of retaining workers and an understanding of what it means to work in a person-centred way increases the chances that workers will make a positive difference in the lives of the people and families they assist. Appreciate inquiry into the performance of direct support workers when they are at their best reveals a relationship that engages their hearts, their minds and their hands.

In collaboration with a group of direct support workers in New York City, Beth Mount and John O'Brien identified 12 themes that make a positive difference to quality of life...
  • Share Life's Journey
  • Create Understanding
  • Generate Respect
  • Raise Expectations
  • Listen with Heart
  • Build Alliances
  • Open Choices
  • Learn the Neighborhood
  • Let Beauty Shine
  • Support Voice
  • Celebrate Community
  • Nurture Relationships
Discovering these themes inpired the creation of resources to guide the development of person-centered direct support. They can be used for staff development, conference handouts, staff appreciation, or retreats.


PERSON-CENTERED DIRECT-SUPPORT FOLDOUT

The foldout includes 12 color images and a description of each of these themes.
The centerfold of the foldout can also be displayed as a poster.
