International Blab with Ray Middleton
This was the first deliberate attempt at a transatlantic dialogue about approaches to homelessness, using Blab.
Here we have a discussion on PIEs and Pretreatment, and more, with Jay Levy, author of two books on pretreatment, Robin Johnson, co-author of the PIEs guidance, and originator of the term itself, Claire Ritchie, author of Westminster’s toolkit on implementing PIEs, and Ray Middleton, prolific Blabber, video producer; and also author of the Leeds assessment tool for complex needs. (aka: @JaySLevy1 @RobinPIELink, @piepeoples, and @Dialogical_Ray)
Note that this was a tentative, early adopters’ experiment; and we are still learning, for example, how to not sit with your back to the light; not get feedback whine from speakers etc.
