Managing the crisis situation


Making decisions together, introducing your own solution, actually acquiring ownership in your own recovery is the new approach. Introducing your own solution sounds simple, but for many people it is a big step. Often, vulnerable people had a childhood in which there was no opportunity to learn safely from crisis experiences, never mind being given the chance to search for their own solutions. No developing within a safely framed autonomy and personally taking the lead in verified crisis situations. If these people learn to apply small personal solutions step by step, that has to be seen as significant progress, in terms of autonomy.

Optimum match with world of experience

Recornect solutions are aimed at making these steps easier to take. The personalised apps on the CoWin media wall give people undergoing treatment the possibility, in the event of a crisis, of managing it as quickly as possible. Even in the most severe phase of their crisis, the person undergoing treatment can retain self-management. With the support of the care worker, they are given access to their own solutions, in the form of personalised apps which perfectly match the patient’s own world of experience. In order to control crisis situations efficiently and safely, the personalised solutions thought up by the care workers and the person undergoing treatment together are recorded beforehand in a signalling plan.

The CoWin media wall enables care workers to narrow down the framework in the event of a loss of control by reducing the number of apps that can be accessed. When the level of reflection in the person experiencing crisis has been sufficiently restored, the framework can be expanded. Care workers can then also extend the possibilities for self-management in the form of apps. Several qualitative research studies have established that the apps are seen as a constructive tool by both patients and care workers. This creates new options for people experiencing crisis. This tool also positively influences the duration and quality of care during a possible confinement.
