While person-centered planning is intended to support people to live self-determined lives, it can also be used inappropriately to compel and coerce people into services they don’t want. When done well, person-centered planning has the potential to advance equity by opening multiple pathways to wellbeing. Poorly implemented person-centered planning can deepen existing inequities. This webinar will convene members of the Massachusetts-based Council Against Institutional and Psychiatric Abuse (CAIPA) to explore what person-centered planning should — and shouldn’t — look like.
