Person-Centered Thinking (PCT) Training


During the 2015 legislative session, Colorado's General Assembly appropriated $500,000 for statewide person-centered training for stakeholders of Colorado's system supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing is contracting with Support Development Associates, LLC (SDA), in partnership with the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL), to conduct an ambitious schedule of trainings over the next several months. 


These trainings are open to stakeholders of the following Home and Community-Based Services waivers: HCBS-Children's Extensive Supports; HCBS-Supported Living Services for people with IDD; and HCBS-Developmental Disabilities. 


In general, Person-Centered Thinking training is an instructor-led training focused on changing perspectives from caring for people to providing balanced support between what is important to a person and what is important for a person. The interactive training helps participants change their thinking from a priority of fixing what is wrong with a person to supporting each person’s opportunities to share their gifts and live an everyday life. These efforts are in line with new federal requirements to implement Person-Centered Planning in Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services.
