Reduce stigma and lower barriers

This training explores how trauma and stigma can impact clients’ health and well-being, as well as access to health and social services. Through discussion and interactive activities, participants will learn practical strategies for reducing stigma in their own practice through trauma- and violence-informed care (TVIC). Participants will be introduced to the principles of TVIC and learn to challenge the access barriers that stigma can create for clients and patients.

Participants will leave with practical tools and skills to develop safer spaces and practices that respond to both the trauma and structural violence that can impact clients and patients when accessing services.

Since 2009, our Training Centre has offered a full-range of workshops tailored for professionals working in all sectors. Learn more about the Training Centre.
