Transition into adulthood is a complex situation for the person, as well as their family. When Person-Centered practices are being used, there are often conflicts that arise between family members and other supporters. This presentation will will focus on how person centered planning practices can be used in conjunction with a Culture of Gentleness to support a young person and their family. Through personal stories that illustrate these principles, we will show how focusing on relationships and a desire for success and growth, we can meet the needs of everyone involved. OBJECTIVES: 1. After this session, participants will be able to define the Six Elements of a Culture of Gentleness. 2. After this session, participants will be able to summarize how the 4 Pillars of a Culture of Gentleness can be used to support person centered practices. 3. After this session, participants will be able to develop a team that can utilize these principles to support someone in transition.
