Heading West

We may not all be going to exactly the same destination, but we are all heading west and one of our responsibilities is to keep each other honest.

One of our ways of understanding person-centered work is as a pioneering journey west. The task is to follow trails opened by a few adventurers, a trail that can be difficult to find and follow and from which it is easy to wander. Our discussion identifies some of the trail markers that provide reliable signs that we continue to head west. We can experiment with using these markers to assess what we are learning on our journeys.
