Preprints and early-stage research may not have been peer reviewed yet.
Designed for users of services and professionals alike, this article is relevant within health and care settings across all sectors where it is only just beginning to be acknowledged that for many, particularly those with experiences of interpersonal trauma, difficulties can arise due to the use of face coverings. Through the introduction of the window of tolerance, this co-produced article from four authors spanning service user involvement, third sector provision, secondary mental health and research provides a practical means of alleviating the trauma reaction through the sharing of skills in the form of grounding techniques, all carefully developed and practiced by the author’s themselves.
