CEU: A reminder that the Minnesota Gathering does not provide continuing education units and therefore does not provide a certificate of continuing education units. If you participated in the 2022 MN Gathering you may be eligible to receive CEUs through your certifying body. You must work with them to obtain CEUs.

WHAT IS A GATHERING? The Gathering is your annual event to meet and learn how person-centered thinkers are planning, providing, and organizing services rooted in listening to what people want and helping them live in their communities based on their choices.

WHAT ARE PERSON CENTERED PRACTICES? Person-centered practices assist people in creating a positive and meaningful life and build on people’s unique interests and strengths. They refer to strategies and tools that are used in many different situations and settings to support people across the lifespan from the very young to the end of life. These strategies apply to everyone, including people receiving support, staff, organizations, and systems. A variety of organizations and settings use person-centered practices to improve the supports that are provided to people. Disability-related services, nursing homes, behavioral health organizations, family homes, and other human service programs are just a few examples of settings where person-centered strategies are used to improve quality of life.
