BASW - Becoming Allies in Social Work: Understanding LGBTQIA+ Inequalities - Focus Workshop - Moving Away From Stereotypes
Part of BASW's Taught Skills Development Programme in collaboration with the National LGBT Partnership
A focus workshop covering the topic area "Moving Away From Stereotypes". Looking at the stereotypes of different identities and why this could prevent people from providing or recieving the appropriate care. An opportunity to consider our own prejudices (in a safe space) with a view to how having a better understanding of prejudices can improve social work practice.
This session follows from a key concepts session and a focus workshop on intersectionality. You don't have to have attended either of these to join this - we'll issue a slidepack in advance with some background information.
