Apr 18 2018, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MST


Have you ever wondered: Why do some conditions get stigmatized and others don't? How is stigma manifested? What perpetuates stigma? What can I do to reduce the negative impact of stigma?

The Center for Health and Safety Culture of Montana State University has been exploring stigma and how stigma is associated with a variety of negative social and health outcomes. Researchers of stigma commonly differentiate between three levels of stigma: public or societal stigma, personal or self-stigma, and structural stigma. Understanding stigma at these interconnected levels can help researchers and stakeholders to identify targeted anti-stigma efforts across the social ecology. In this free webinar, Center for Health and Safety Culture Senior Research Scientist, Dr. Kari Finley, will discuss how stigma negatively influences a variety of health conditions and how we can reduce stigma in our work to improve health and safety.
