European Best Practices in Psychologically Informed Environments and Trauma Informed Care
The programme concerns the training of employees working in organisations offering services to homeless people who experience mental health problems and need psychosocial support. It focuses on the Trauma Informed Care and Psychologically Informed Environments models and on how these can be incorporated in the therapeutic approach for these persons.
In July 2021, an initial webinar was organised by the Psychiatric Hospital of Lisbon. In November the first face-to-face Seminar took place at the city of Cork in Ireland. This seminar focused on the concept of Trauma. Two more seminars will take place by the end of 2022.
