why it is important to work in a way that embeds person centred values
Person Centred Planning discovers and acts on what is important to a person. [ It is a process for continual listening and learning, focussing on what is important to someone now and in the future, and acting on this in alliance with their family and their friends. Person-centred planning was created in response to some specific problems with the way in which society responds to people with
disabilities. Those who first described the processes were responding to the effects that 'services' can have on people's lives. In this context 'services' is a general term used to refer to the organisations which are set up to help people in relation to their disability (or at least in relation to how other people have responded to that disability). It would include health and social care services funded by government or local authorities, but also privately funded or voluntary sector projects of many kinds. Person-centred planning involves the individual receiving the service, with family members, neighbors, employers, community members, and friends, and professionals (such as physician/ doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, support workers, care managers, therapists, and social workers) developing a plan on community participation and quality of life with the individual. In contrast, traditional models of planning have focussed on the person's deficits and negative behaviours, labelling the person and creating a disempowering mindset from the start. Person-centred planning offers an alternative to traditional models, striving to place the individual at the centre of decision-making, treating family members as partners. The process focusses on discovering the person's gifts, skills and capacities, and on listening for what is really important to the person . It is based on the values of human rights, interdependence, choice and social inclusion, and can be designed to enable people to direct their own services and supports, in a personalised way ]

why risk-taking can be part of a person centred approach
Weegy: Sometimes we all have to take risks to get what we really want. Its a part of living a full life. [ Supporting individuals to take risks to do what they have chosen to do is part of a person centred way of working. This is about asking the person, reading their file and speaking to others about the individual's background, and what their preferences, wishes and needs are. This begins with a focus on who the person is, their gifts and skills. By offering a positive vision of success, the approach can enable people to manage risk. .. ] (More)
