I love seeing these pictures of Centering spaces... I have visited some of them (lucky me!) and can see in the pictures the "welcoming energy" you have all put into creating them. make me smile inside!

Good Morning Everyone, Is there an official CHI policy on privacy screens? As in a hard yes or no for them? I know there is the requirement of privacy but wanted to know if there is an official written policy. There was some discussion at my site years before I arrived that screens were not model fidelity. Some staff are still operating under this notion. My understanding is it is sound trauma informed care to have a barrier, and then the site chooses what that is, yes? Thanks in advance for your replies! In Gratitude, Jo
There is no official policy on privacy screens. The group space should have privacy (ie no non group staff walking through), but inside the group space you can use whatever features work for your space to make the clinical assessment area feel private. Some clinics don't use screens at all, and instead may use soft barriers like plants or the natural shape of the room to create a more private corner. The possibilities are endless!
