03 Oct Webinar: Addressing Stigma Within Healthcare and Social Service Provision
From 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM
Presented by Futures Without Violence
Stigma is complicated and there are numerous components at play that allow stigma to affect health care and social services. Power imbalances among people, in environments, and in the structure of our system create an atmosphere where stigmatizing behaviors thrive. Presenters will discuss a framework for understanding stigma, identify staff behavior that stigmatize clients and provide tools/resources that can help providers treat clients with respect, dignity, and worth.
