Sensitivity Training Workshop

On March 4, the USA ICHAD team took part in a Sensitivity Training Workshop led by Dr. Susan Witte from Columbia University. The objective of this training was to provide the ICHAD team with the tools and knowledge needed to better serve vulnerable populations with an emphasis on women who engage in sex work. The training included several activities that were designed to demonstrate the numerous complexities involved for women who engage in sex work, challenge the stereotypes held towards women engaged in sex work, and recognize internal and external stigma. The training also emphasized what can be done to improve facilities and services for these vulnerable populations.
