The Power Threat Meaning Framework, launched on January 12th 2018 in London, is the result of a DCP –funded project to develop a conceptual alternative to the diagnostic model of mental health difficulties and distress.
The project team, which was led by Lucy Johnstone and Mary Boyle, consisted of both leading clinical psychologists and service users/survivors.
Over a period of 5 years the team developed an alternative approach to identifying patterns in distress that synthesises evidence about the causal roles of power, evolved threat responses, social discourses, and personal meanings and narratives.
The Framework has attracted national and international interest, and is intended to provide the basis for an ongoing series of developments in clinical practice, peer support, service design and commissioning, professional training, research, and social policy.
At this event Lucy Johnstone will outline the principles of the project, with an emphasis on how it can support and build on existing good practice in trauma-informed approaches and trauma-informed formulation.
Please note: this event is open to DCP Members only.
