The theme of this months’ organised dialogue is a challenge for us all. We will look at the impact of negative stereotyping – its ‘costs’ to our young people and their/our communities – and also how we can actively challenge it ourselves and how we can enable/encourage young people to actively challenge it themselves?
Stereotyping has existed since the dawn of time – most often those people who ‘receive’ the effects of being stereotyped and those who engage in the doing of it – never discuss its impact with each other. However, these conversations have started to evolve.
I’ve included some thoughts by young people themselves about the impact of stereotyping.
I’ve also included a workbook from Northern Ireland on how they are challenging negative stereotyping.
