The roots and the trunk contain the necessary basic and in-depth information of the overall concept (to be found under the tab "This is CBPS"). Please read this section before consulting more specialised topics. It is recommended to learn to know the "basics" before climbing higher up in the tree...
The strong mid branches of the tree represent the main “Subjects”, on which CBPS is built; ‘Codes of Conduct’, ‘Reactions to traumatic events’, ‘Community mobilisation’, ‘Assessment’, ‘Life span perspective’, ‘Working together in another community’, ‘CBPS across sectors’, ‘Gender’, ‘Conflict’, ‘Staff care’, Spiritual life in emergency’ and ‘Disaster preparedness’. Linked to every subject are relevant ‘Articles’ (marked with a leave), from which you can select the topic most interesting to your field and need. Having climbed so far, you are half way through the concept!
Each strong branch (subject!) leads into side branches, twigs and leaves - representing different ways of using and reading the main content. The smaller branches reflect whether the material is useful for 'programme development' and/or for 'capacity building' purposes (see under "Practice"). The twigs symbolise the "Target group" concerned; if the subject matters on an 'organisational' level or if it is interesting to analyse the topic with regard to the 'affected population'.
The tree metaphor continues: coming off each main branch are side branches, then twigs and finally leaves. These leaves reflect your own active role in the project/programme. Which level is most relevant to you as a “User” of this website: field worker, manager, trainer or programme planner.
