Description

Getting to the Roots of Tolerance -Child and Youth Network


Are we all tolerated equally? Many health and social service leaders across Canada are asking this critical question in their efforts to improve the quality of services for all clients. We all know that attitudes like tolerance, appreciation, and repulsion are connected to particular behaviours. This connection is the foundation for understanding how and why cultural safety is needed for transformation in health care and social services today.


This single halfday workshop offered by the Ontario Indigenous Cultural Safety Program and in partnership with the Southwestern Ontario Aboriginal Health Access Centre will explore the connection between attitudes and behaviours through a variety of engaging and thought-provoking activities and exercises. Participants will have the opportunity to explore models of cultural safety, stereotyping, and the Indigenous-specific colonial narratives that inform dominant attitudes in Canada. They will be able to reflect on their own attitudes and beliefs through an individual activity, and then apply this knowledge and insight to specific scenarios. The scenarios will deal with service situations that are relevant to the participants’ experiences. This part of the workshop is often full of “a-ah” moments for the whole group!


Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of the connection between attitudes and behaviours and a greater appreciation for the ways that this can play out differently in relationships with Indigenous clientele. “Getting to the Roots of Tolerance” provides participants with a unique experience to step out of the everyday and look at the roots of the issues that impact their work, the efficacy of service provision, and clients’ quality of care.


Lunch will be served.
