S.T.A.R. Kit


Matching Support is a valuable way to summarize the results of an intentional discovery process between someone who wants to provide person-centered support and the person who wants to receive that support. It is one of the first steps in staff recruitment for any organization that intends to honor the voice of the person in having choice and a level of control in who offers support, when it is offered and what it looks like. Having a good match makes support better for everyone involved. Bad matches can lead to bad outcomes.

Firstperson Services S.T.A.R. System kits help you to use your team meetings to focus on one particular tool and practice using it, getting feedback and encouragement on their progress in using the Person Centered Thinking skills that they learned in the Introductory workshop. One approach is to decide which person-centered thinking tool is the priority for your team to be competent and confident in and focus there. Some team managers look at one tool per month.
