Psychosocial Safety Concept Map
The key to understanding psychosocial safety is to understand how context influences behavior and thinking. Psychosocial safety is therefore relational. The best way to represent the relational nature of psychosocial safety is through a concept map. Concept mapping shows the relationship between concepts and their interdependence.
