Index Title: Person Centered Planning
DMHSAS Info Memo Series 2009 -02
Area Administrators/Assistant Area Administrators Bureau Directors
This memo describes an opportunity for individuals and staff of counties and tribes who have clinical experience and availability to train others statewide in Person Centered Planning. A focus on recovery oriented approaches to assessment and treatment planning will be part of the on site training that will be supplemented with follow up conference calls to enhance skill development. This training will prepare providers to meet requirements proposed by CMS that update the rehabilitation rule. In 2008, forty four counties in Wisconsin sent staff and consumers to training in person centered planning and services. Wisconsin made this training available under a grant from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS) and engaged Diane Grieder, Neal Adams and their colleagues as trainers. Neal and Diane are the authors of a book “Treatment Planning for Person-Centered Care: The Road to Mental Health and Addiction Recovery”. Adams and Grieder as well as others used and built on the principles of person centered planning (first introduced to Wisconsin by John and Connie O’Brien in the field of developmental disability) for professionals who provide mental health and substance use services. Diane and Neal have also worked with many other states to facilitate similar efforts and related system transformation.
Training in Person Centered Planning
The Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services has a grant from CMS to develop a cadre of trainers in person centered planning. Those applicants interested in training will be screened based on current skill to train others in this model. The train the trainer program consists of a two day intensive workshop to be held on April 29 and 30, 2009, in Madison with the national trainers. That training will be followed by phone calls between the trainers and trainees. A second on-site visit to meet trainees after they complete at least one workshop is planned to occur in September 2009.
