Join team members from the  Centre for Trauma Asylum and Refugees (CTAR) and the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies at the University of Essex for this  online training event on qualitative mapping methodologies to engage vulnerable populations.

  • What are qualitative mapping methodologies?
  • What are some of the benefits of using mapping to engage vulnerable populations?
  • What are some of the challenges (including ethical considerations) to using these approaches?
  • How might using these approaches support community development and participation?

This training, open to all, will be especially useful to staff and volunteers from organisations working with people, including those from refugee backgrounds, who may be facing adversity.  We welcome people of all walks of life and professional backgrounds to this workshop. No prior specialist knowledge is required, just an interest in the topic, curiosity to find out more and willingness to reflect on experiences.  Training will be interactive with opportunities for participants to contribute to discussion, ask questions and learn from each other as well as from the presenters/facilitators.
