The purpose of this project was to identify a potential grant funder and to write a grant proposal for Golden Gate Regional Center to contract with Michael Smull, founder of Person-Center Thinking. By training Golden Gate Regional Center employees and partnering vendors, individuals with a developmental disability will have the opportunity to individualize their goals and have more choices as to how they choose to live their life. Person-Center Thinking incorporates family, friends, and the community in the support of these individuals rather than through paid support agencies.
Golden Gate Regional Center envisions that the process of complete paradigm shift toward Person-Centered Thinking will take several years to accomplish. Thus, training of all employees, vendors, individuals, and their families will be on-going. Person-Center Thinking accomplishes the core principles of social work values. The actual submission of the grant proposal was not required for thesis project.
