DEVELOPING BEST PRACTICE GUIDELINES FOR EFFECTIVE JOINT WORKING - PSYCHOLOGISTS AND COMMUNITY ORGANISATIONS

Date:   Tues 20th May 2014
Time:   18.30-20.30
Place:  Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA

Kate Thompson (Northeast London NHS Foundation Trust – Refugee Support Psychology Service) and Sarah Menzies (Evelyn Oldfield Unit – Supporting Women Project) are looking for help!  We want to develop best practice guidelines for effective partnership working between psychologists working in the statutory sector (and other settings) and community organisations.  We are wondering if you too are noticing the strain that austerity is putting on small community based organisations, as well as on psychologists in a more target driven climate. How can we maximise the benefits of our joint working?  And perhaps even sell them to the high ups?

We would like to talk to you about this in an interactive meeting where we will be joined by representatives from some local community organisations,  with a view to developing guidelines that we hope the BPS will publish to guide work going forward. We are also hoping to develop a toolkit that teams can use to evaluate how community driven their services are.

Please come along and take part, bringing all your examples of success and challenge so we can learn from you!

Dear all
A message from Kate Thompson - co-facilitator with Sarah for the London network session on Tuesday 20th May called 'Developing Best Practice Guidelines for Effective Joint Working - Psychologists and Community Organisations'....

Just in case anyone who is coming to the session on Tuesday is interested in a wee bit of pre-meeting reading, here is the link to the 2008 NICE guidelines on community engagement (! Yes, I hadn't taken them in before!).  They are aimed at services in health and social care so are specifically relevant to the context I work in but might also be of interest (despite limitations).  

NICE GUIDELINES:  http://www.nice.org.uk/PH9
Here is also a link to a very useful paper by Rachel Tribe and Pauline Lane offering some thoughts about NICE's offering.

I look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday at 6.30 at the Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA.

All the best

Kate Thompson
