Dialogic Practices

Drawing from Dialogic Practices and Enabling Coplanning approach, we support homeless people in envisioning a better future and working to reach it.

Early Intervention

We recognise the importance of detecting people at the very moment they experience homelessness and working with them in an effective way, to prevent them to fall into a condition of chronic deprivation.

Intervision

Besides traditional supervision, through the “Intervision” social workers share their knowledge and learning with a peer-to-peer approach, training the team to reflect on their working practices.

What about Hood Project?

Being homeless means losing power over life: over housing, time, future, and the possibility to choose.

Sometimes, projects and services aimed to support homeless people reinforce this lack of power, providing pre-established solutions and standardised paths to follow.
The Enabling Coplanning methodology, inspired by the Dialogic Practices, provides social workers tools and theoretical frameworks to develop a new kind of intervention.

Power is reallocated in the helping relationship: the person in need has the power over the direction of intervention and social workers become tools for sustaining it.

Thanks to personalised projects, people are supported in exploring the life’s possibilities.
In this process, they gain experience, self-awareness and learn how to navigate the life possibilities they can reach, while social workers cooperate to find effective means to sustain this exploration of possible futures. 

 

Enabling Coplanning with homeless people

 

The Enabling Coplanning is an established methodology in Northern Italy, inspired by Dialogic Practices, born for working with people with disabilities.

In the Hood project, we are adjusting this methodology to the framework of homelessness.
We are six partners from five different countries engaged in the fight against homelessness.
We work in different kinds of services that support homeless people, from outreach work to housing first, from early intervention to research.

Adopting the Enabling Coplanning in our daily routine, we are adjusting this method, exchanging reflections and findings, comparing how our differences influence the development of the intervention.
Furthermore, we are exploring the potential of the Enabling Coplanning when combined with early intervention: we believe they could be an effective method to work with people who recently become homeless, preventing them from further worsening their condition.

Informative documents

Here you can find documents to improve your understanding of the HOOD project.

In this section there are two kinds of documents.
Factsheets are available in more languages and they focus on the milestones of HOOD: our goals, partners, our main activities.
Bites, like bites we would take from good food, are briefer and focused on specific topics emerging in HOOD that we found interesting.
Finally here you find reports which are the outputs of our main activities.
All of them will help you to gain a better understanding of what we do in HOOD, what we mean with Enabling Coplanning, how we share power, and so much more. 

Glossary

Translating technical terms is always tricky.

A term in one language can correspond to two different words in another language.
An expression can have nuances that get lost in the translation.
To sustain our cooperative work, we decided to create a shared glossary of the key terms social workers use in their daily work.

The glossary will support our work of Intervision, improving the translation of our Platform, and it can be a useful resource also for other professionals working in transnational partnerships.
You can join us in this activity: suggest a term you use in your work on the homelessness issue and we will translate it into our five languages!
