Stigma in Childhood: August 30th and 31st

A third stigma in childhood seminar will conclude a successful Strathclyde-based knowledge exchange programme.

This innovative series has brought together leading global experts, plus young people with lived experience of stigma, to consider how stigma is experienced by children from different places, and how it manifests itself; for the children themselves, in families and communities, and in services provision.

‘Addressing and alleviating stigma in childhood’ will take place on August 30th & 31st at the Scottish Universities Insight, and is open to anyone working with children and young people, or who has been affected by these issues. Speakers will include Duncan Dunlop (CEO, Who Cares? Scotland), former Children’s Commissioner for Scotland Tam Baillie, and Dr Lise-Lott Rydström and Dr Maria Wiklander from Sweden’s Karolinska Institute.

Workshops will explore a range of issues including living with HIV in Sweden, stigma 

and mental health in schools, and care experienced young people addressing stigma. 

The second day will include a session on taking forward the programme and what happens next.

Outcomes and learning will be used to promote lasting change for children and young people living with stigma and marginalisation.
