Positive Psychology & Person-Centred Planning

Simon Duffy interviews Michaela Wegener on Positive Psychology, its relationship to person-centred planning and the advancement of citizenship for all. 

Michaela has worked with leaders in the person-centred planning community in Germany and supports education for social care workers. Michaela explains that person-centred planning and positive psychology share an interest in trying to make visible the positive resources for wellbeing that are available to people - but often become invisible in clinical or professional settings.
