respect and holism;

power and empowerment;

choice and autonomy;

empathy and compassion.

Tanya Richmond shares "I recently had the opportunity and honor to talk about person centered practices and person centered services and supports in the US. The best part was getting to interview my friend, Kenneth Giannotti and Heather LaTorra of Marrakech, Inc. The links for both Spotify and Apple Podcasts are below. In addition to being one of the best friends a person could have, Kenny is also insightful about what makes for a good life and how person centered practices helps those in support roles listen for what matters most. I'd be delighted if you'd listen to our podcast.
