Trauma informed participatory research: Reflections on co-producing a research proposal

Lonbay, Sarah, Pearson, Amy, Hamilton, Emma, Higgins, Pat, Foulkes, Emma and Glascott, Michelle (2021) Trauma informed participatory research: Reflections on co-producing a research proposal. Gateways: International Journal of Community Research and Engagement, 14 (1). ISSN 1836-3393

Item Type: Article


This article discusses the development of a co-produced research proposal. The authors reflect on the process of this work and some of the challenges that were experienced by a team who had a mix of lived, clinical and academic experience of the research topic. We highlight the need to embed trauma informed principles into co-produced research and the ways in which doing so can support the development of co-produced work. As such, the article focuses on how we established safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness and empowerment during the process of developing the proposal. Within this we offer our reflection on some of the challenges we experienced and our learning from undertaking this work.
