PIE ALS. Book now!

PIE ALS. Book now!

This ALS in now fully booked.

Following two successful Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE) Action Learning Sets (ALS), our third PIE ALS will commence on Wednesday 13th September.

Places are limited, and we are now looking for two nominations from organisations who would like to participate.  As this is a group learning activity, participants will need to attend all of the sessions to support group reflection and learning.

Why attend?

  •  Help your service or organisation work more creatively and constructively with clients with multiple needs and challenging behaviours
  •  Extend your networks and understanding of other agencies' approaches towards working with multiple needs and people who have   experienced trauma
  • Learn more about an approach that is receiving increasing recognition as good practice.

A Psychologically Informed Environment is one that takes into account the psychological make-up... the thinking, personalities and past experience of participants in the way it operates. It's an approach to supporting people, in particular those who have experienced complex trauma or are diagnosed with a personality disorder. It also considers the psychological needs of staff; developing skills and knowledge, increasing motivation, job satisfaction and resilience.

Feedback from former participants includes:

"The small group format helped me to understand what can be done to have a real impact for service-users."

"Very informative and insightful – it gave me space to think."

"Hearing from other agencies helped clarify my own ideas."
