From Fostering Change: “Peer support and collaboration are central to a trauma-informed approach to building social resilience. But many services that claim to be working to build resilience are erecting barriers to people’s recovery.
We need to rethink specialist services, to be more socially focused in their view of trauma and resilience. We need greater trust and collaboration between specialists and communities; more emphasis placed on the value of peer-peer and friendship-based support and a more complete and rounded view of where we get our resilience from.
It’s more than a skill that you can teach yourself.”
