ANNOUNCEMENT SCOTTISH DRUGS FORUM TRAINING EVENTS  

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in the light of advice from the Government and others, SDF has cancelled all face-to-face training. This decision will be reviewed in due course.

In the immediate term, we are switching over to a virtual platform and these courses are viewable below and free to access to anyone working or living in Scotland.

Scottish Drugs Forum’s e-learning platform will continue as normal and 8 e-learning courses are available.

SDF are still able to discuss ideas around commissioning bespoke training beyond the core training.  If you would like to discuss this contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This training will take place via Microsoft Teams

There is no pre-course e-learning for this training

Overview

Stigma can have a profound impact upon the lives of people who use alcohol and other drugs or those who have a history of substance use. The impact of stigma can permeate numerous aspects of a person’s life such as their health and wellbeing, relationships, education and employment prospects and socioeconomic status.

Commonly, family, friends, service providers and institutions often place numerous expectations on people who use substances to engage in change behaviour, however, the social context that creates and perpetuates the cycle of stigma is rarely considered or challenged. Through developing a greater awareness of the wider context that the cycle of stigma fosters and exploring our own role in reinforcing and challenging stigma, participants can identify new approaches for fostering enhanced relationships with service users.

Aim

This one day training will give participants a distinct set of knowledge and skills to help them understand and address alcohol and drug-related stigma.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Describe the impact of stigma on people who use substances, people in treatment or in recovery from substance use
  • Recall language which de-stigmatises people affected by substance use.
  • Describe how stigma and discrimination impact on the quality and effectiveness of service delivery.
  • Identify institutional and structural stigma attached to people who use substances, people in treatment or in recovery from substance use.
