Person Centred Planning and Graphic Recording Workshop- The PATH Process

June 27, 2017, 9:30 am - June 28, 2017, 4:30 pm


PATH is a person centred planning tool to graphically map out a desirable future for an individual with or without a disability. Part of the unique strength of this process is the colourful visual record that is created which is dynamic, affirming, motivating and action oriented. PATH specifies achievable goals and clarifies the first steps for their  implementation.

PATH explores and identifies:
  • the current situation
  • short and long term goals
  • where support may come from
  • possible obstacles
  • first steps for action

PATH is an action template that uses graphic imagery and facilitated discussion leading to positive plans that achieve commitment and generate outcomes. Such plans can be facilitated for individuals, groups and organizations.

This workshops covers:
  • The use of graphics as a recording tool, including words and colour, transforming basic shapes into representative figures and people and expressions
  • The role of the graphic recorder, and contexts for use
  • Basic facilitation skills
  • The origins and structure of PATH as a planning tool
  • The working relationship between the process facilitator and the graphic recorder, and the Pathfinder

Participants will observe Ray Murray and Debbie Espinder facilitate and graphically record a PATH before then having the opportunity to experience PATH in each of the three roles – as the Pathfinder, the process facilitator and the graphic recorder.

At the conclusion of the workshop participants will be ready to use PATH as a person centred planning tool for the people they support.
