For a long time we’ve known about the link between domestic abuse and homelessness  but childhood trauma and abuse can also leave a legacy of isolation, mental health problems, substance abuse and, ultimately, homelessness

That’s why some services for the homeless have been transforming themselves into Psychologically Informed Environments. Becoming a psychologically informed environment (PIE) – and, by association, trauma informed care – means making psychological frameworks the foundation of the service and helping people to understand why they feel and behave the way that they do.


Adoption hasn’t been as fast as service users need, however – some services are reluctant to abandon years’ worth of established practice. Here Claire Ritchie, Emma Williamson and Grant Everitt discuss how to overcome the challenges to becoming PIE.
