This is an introductory level course which explores a toolkit for those with little or no knowledge of stigma. It aims to support practitioners in their daily work to understand and think about the issues, harms and injustice that stigma presents for people. It offers practical options how to consider stigma - helping to promote a more inclusive practice and ensure that people are treated with respect and dignity.
By the end of this course participants will:
Develop an understanding of stigma and how it has been experienced in Fife and reported by families
Understand the influences that contribute to stigma and how stigma is reinforced and reproduced
Build an awareness of your own unconscious bias and how this may lead to stigma
Recognise where stigma may present in your workplace and role
Identify actions for promoting inclusive practice in tackling stigma in your workplace and role
Who should attend?
Those who want to build their knowledge and understanding of stigma for practice and policy making and/or practitioners working with families who may encounter stigma including those in education, health and social care, housing, police, social work, and services providing money advice and other advice services.
