Power Threat Meaning Framework (London 2018)

A brief guide to using the PTM Framework to support narratives These prompts and questions are adapted from the ones used with the project’s service user consultation group. They are offered as a possible way to start reflection and discussion about how the PTM Framework might apply, in personal or peer supported use, or between service users and professionals. The same structure could be adapted for family or groupwork, or for staff training, consultation, supervision or team formulation. It is best used in conjunction with educational material about the impacts of various forms of threat on the mind, brain and body, such as http://cwmtaf.wales/services/mental-health/stabilisation-pack/. It may also be helpful to use the ‘Identities’ template (see end of this appendix) as a starting point. At the end, there is an option to compare the emerging story with the broader patterns described under ‘Provisional General Patterns.’ This may help to provide validation and reassurance, as well as placing stories in a wider societal context. The prompts and questions below are very much open to development and adaption. The project team welcomes feedback, especially from those working in services such as Child and Adolescent or Intellectual Disability settings, where modifications will be needed.
