Advocating with Survivors Who Have Alternative Perceptions: Simple Strategies to Overcome Stigma

Event Date
Thursday, April 18, 2024, 03:00PM

In this webinar from the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health, presenters will challenge dominant cultural narratives that pathologize experiences like hearing voices and other alternative perceptions. Presenters will dispel common myths and explore perspectives that validate these experiences as meaningful responses shaped by not only trauma and oppression, but also by spirituality and culture. Learn strategies for empowering those with differing perceptions while overcoming stigma through relationship-building and emotional support. The session will equip both advocates and organizations with strategies to address stigma and create more inclusive, affirming spaces.
