Description

Person Centred Rehabilitation

Person centred rehabilitation is designed to create a better life for an individual by the provision of an intense input designed to being about social change. This usually entails a series of visits focused on getting the person out and about to increase confidence, social skills and presence in their local community and to pursue goals and dreams. Usually, the work is carried out under the close clinical supervision of a practicing psychologist.

PERSON CENTRED PLANNING

A Person Centred Planning event would be carried out using the PATH or MAP process – majoring on dreams and goal setting leading to precise action planning.

Facilitators would carry out the PATH or other person centred process. A large graphic will be one of the outcomes of the meetings this is a great visual record and a shared memory of the event. This will also inform the priorities for the later follow up inclusion facilitation work.

Following the PATH event a ‘scoping report’ is created outlining what Inclusion Facilitation could offer and highlighting what dreams and goals the individual has.

INCLUSION FACILITATION

The PATH is also provides a good opportunity for the Facilitator to meet the focus person in a comfortable positive environment.

Agreed visits from the Inclusion Facilitator are then carried out over a 3 month period. After this intensive input the Inclusion Facilitator will hand over to the existing family, carers and PA team to carry on where he or she has left off. This transition time is planned from the outset.

An experienced psychologist needs to be there to support the facilitator at all times and will guide all work done by the inclusion facilitator.

Is this just Support work?

No! This is proactive engagement – doing whatever is required.

This is not passively or reactively providing what is asked for – we are actively pursuing a good life for the individual.

The work is built on careful research around a person’s interests and what opportunities exist locally

There is community mapping

There is work to tackle an individual’s own resistance and reluctance to engage more socially

There is a need to engage with people in social settings that the individual attends to build bridges and connections – we are bridge builders

You will need to build circles around a person

There is a need to create the conditions in which friendships can flourish

There is a need for direct psychological supervision and support throughout

This work is short term and intense.

The facilitator’s main aims will vary depending on the dreams and goals of the focus person. The basic aim of the inclusion facilitator is to better the focus person’s quality of life.
