Developing better relationships with adolescents: an intersectional approach

10/14/2020 15:00 - 16:00

We know that race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, social class and abilities have a huge impact on how young people experience the world, and how well they might be safeguarded by services. This session will:

  • Explain what an intersectional approach means, taking into account the multiple facets of a young person’s identity and how they might experience interrelated forms of oppression, discrimination and risk.
  • How to bring this thinking into initial meetings with young people and building relationships over time.
  • Demonstrate examples of what intersectionality might look like in work with young people using case study scenarios
