When did your social justice ego keep you from doing prevention work well or impact how you did/do the work well?
Approaching primary prevention accessibly and equitably means beginning with a nuanced social justice framework that views socialization to be the foundation of our identity. Programming which scrutinizes socialization can challenge our participants very sense of who they are, and we risk pushing participants beyond their capacity to engage with our content.
This workshop offers a candid discussion about lessons learned through mistakes in primary prevention. We will explore the significance of our own learning and adjusting approaches to engage participants in content with decreased defensiveness and increased humility.
