Positive Profile and Planning for Action. Module 2 advances the learning from Module 1, Foundations of Person-Centered Practices, though interactive exercises that teach participants skills in developing positive profiles with people who face stigma and discrimination on a daily basis. Learners practice strategies to recognize and identify attributes, capacities and other positive characteristics within people that can serve as important links to obtaining and sustaining valuable roles in everyday community settings. This module concludes with an overview of developing preliminary plans of action that are specifically designed to highlight the connection between the positive profile and potential for community connections.
