Davina Wilson ‘Understanding our privilege and the oppression of a single story’ workshop
For the first part of the workshop Davina Wilson will lead a discussion on the wider elements of oppression and disadvantage that may affect our clients. She will open this up using a ‘Privilege Walk’ tool and also discuss the issues and downfalls of using such tools widely. There will be lots of opportunity to discuss either as a large group or as smaller groups in breakout spaces to dig a little deeper into our own questions or experiences you would like to explore in a safe space. This is, of course, optional.
Davina will continue to lead the workshop by highlighting the problematic assumptions we can hold as a profession of our clients when we only know of a ‘single story’ about them. This can affect every client as we group them into marginalised arenas, unaware we are not seeing the individual for their unique experience.

The time we have together will be an opportunity to take the next steps in this difficult conversation around protected characteristics, disadvantage and oppression. We must be able to recognise our own role we play in order to become allies in changing the way we interact with our peers and clients for both their benefit and ours.
If there are any questions/areas you would particularly like to explore within the workshop please email
