This webinar will provide an understanding of what basic psychological needs are and how the COVID-19 crisis has impacted upon those of young people.  It will offer practical guidance around having conversations to support young people experiencing or at risk of homelessness and their basic psychological needs.

The impact of the Covid-19 crisis, and the measures brought in to deal with it, have had a strong psychological impact on many. Disadvantaged young people who do not have access to many of the grounding factors that build and maintain security and resilience, such as established careers, family and community networks or stable accommodation may feel these effects particularly keenly.

  • Provide an understanding of what basic psychological needs are and how the COVID-19 crisis has impacted upon young people’s psychological needs.
  • Give an overview of how the University of Birmingham SPRINT project have conducted research to support psychological needs and improve well-being of young people experiencing homelessness
  • Offer practical guidance around having conversations to support young people and their basic psychological needs

  • Lauren Page-Hammick, Innovation and Good Practice Manager for Youth Homelessness, Homeless Link
  • Dr Mary Quinton, Research Fellow: SPRINT project, University of Birmingham
