The Person Directed Framework
The Person Directed Framework (PDF) integrates Positive Approaches, System Thinking and the contributions of two very influential groups: The important work of the Heart and Soul of Change Project www.heartandsoulofchange.com summarizing what we are learning from years of outcome research as well as the simplicity and wisdom of the Nonviolent Communication model developed by Marshall Rosenberg www.cnvc.org. It is representative of the necessity for providers to rebalance the traditional power structure within programs, supports and services.
The Person Directed Framework (PDF) is a very simple and powerful way to connect with others yet, not habitual for most people. It is designed to help anyone appreciate how we often unintentionally create conditions while helping where the people we are trying to support experience oppression, humiliation, and dehumanization.
