The Cultural Interactions workshop 201 focuses on how stigma develops, who we stigmatize and how it affects those populations we serve. Participants will explore their personal biases and will be given concrete methods to reduce bias and stigma through self-awareness, empathy, asking questions, generalizing and not stereotyping, and using the teach-back method. Participants will learn to identify health disparities as they exist in their community and how their organization can effectively address those health disparities. Finally, we will teach participants how to focus their efforts on specific populations served by their organizations.

Learning Objectives:

  • To explore how empathy, generalizing and not stereotyping cultures, and improved communication can help providers effectively interact with their patients.
  • Identify personal root causes of stigma.
  • Learn ways to reduce the effect of stigma for those living with HIV.
