PIEs 2.0 - specifics

Part of the essence of a PIE is flexibility to meet needs; and the central approach of the PIEs 2.0 formula aims to support and accentuate that, stressing the need to customise every key element to the circumstances - the client or user group, and the particular setting.

The new PIEs formula - like the older, 'classic' one - picks out half a dozen key areas to attend to; but there is very little in practice that ALL services should do; everything should be related to the specific needs of the service, the client group (or groups); and the setting.

The examples, the more specific areas of customisable practice, that we will present here are clustered in the three areas that seem to best reflect the questions we have had, the issues raised in meetings, visits, workshops and seminars, the evidence so far available of 'what works', and the comments of registering members that indicate what PIElink members have been looking for ( see 'Is the PIE evolving?' for some of this history) .

These there specific areas are:

  • Needs: client group issues and psychological needs
  • Settings: the places and organisations where we work
  • Approaches: the ways of working, and the inspiration for 

Presenting examples of these issues here will nevertheless probably be the most complex task, even for a website, that allows readers/viewers to browse at their own pace for their own concerns. Please bear with us over several weeks in early 2018, as we sort and arrange a mass of material.
