Resource Summary

Trauma theory has demonstrated how trauma lingers in the body and can be triggered by what survivors see, hear, feel and smell. Trauma-informed design starts with a recognition that all buildings have an effect on people and that there is constant communication between space and those who inhabit it. In this paper, Dr Madeline Petrillo from the University of Greenwich summarises the co-production process employed to design Hope Street, our pioneering residential community for justice involved women and their children.
