Clinicians’ Network Community Conversations: What does it mean to feel safe?


Please note:

due to the sensitive nature of the conversation, this event was not recorded.


Launched in November 2021, the Health Care for the Homeless Clinicians’ Network hosts monthly Community Conversations. Forming around pressing issues affecting providers (defined broadly) who serve people experiencing homelessness, Community Conversations are not webinars: they are discussions informed by real-life cases meant to improve wellbeing of HCH providers through mutual support and problem-solving. Therefore, attendees are expected to share openly and encourage others, not just listen, and all participants are encouraged to have their cameras on if possible. To facilitate a safer space, the conversations will not be recorded.

Our fourth Community Conversation will take up the ethical challenges surrounding psychological safety. Do HCH clinicians tend to sacrifice psychological safety or overemphasize it? How do we differentiate physical safety and psychological safety while valuing both? How do our personal identities influence whether we feel safe? Join us to explore these and other difficult questions.
