Understanding Stigma: Promoting Inclusive Attitudes and Practices

, Start Time: 09:30, End Time: 16:30

Venue

Inshes Church, Inverness

Overview

Stigma can have a profound impact upon the lives of people who use alcohol and other drugs or those who have a history of substance use. The impact of stigma can permeate numerous aspects of a person's life such as their health and wellbeing, relationships, education and employment prospects and socioeconomic status.

Through developing a greater awareness of the wider context that the cycle of stigma fosters and exploring our own role in reinforcing and challenging stigma, participants can identify new approaches for fostering enhanced relationships with service users.

Aim

This one day training will give participants a distinct set of knowledge and skills to help them understand and address alcohol and drug related stigma.
