There are a wealth of ideas on this website and they are bringing together co-produced work from everywhere to create a real community of learning and shared expertise!
Here are a few of the brilliant examples of co-production and the importance of psychologically informed / trauma informed working I found through their work.
It is important that people implementing co-production in complex situations have support to think through the challenges and learn from other colleagues experiences.
My favourites include:
- A blog post from Dr Nick Maguire on the importance of psychologically informed environments (PIE) for front-line of organisations dealing with homelessness: https://www.homeless.org.uk/connect/blogs/2017/feb/08/why-pie-rationale-for-psychologically-informed-environments
- A practical guide on how to implement PIE by Westminster City Council and the Making EVER Adult Matter coalition: http://meam.org.uk/2015/10/28/new-resource-on-psychologically-informed-environments/
- Research on implementing PIE into a young person’s homeless shelter and how it changed the relationships between staff and those using the service. https://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/abs/10.1108/HCS-12-2013-0024
- A link page to resources for on how to implementing both PIE and Trauma Informed Care, this link has really helpful webinars, tool-kits and an introduction to using reflective practice – so important for maintaining well-being of those working in challenging situations: https://www.homeless.org.uk/trauma-informed-care-and-psychologically-informed-environments
