Anti-Oppressive Practice on Campus: An Interactive Conversation
Date & Time
Thursday, August 12, 2021, 10:45 AM - 11:30 AM
Description

The mental needs of students from equity-deserving groups are increasingly being highlighted across campuses, along with the realization that current systems and means of providing resources to these students are causing barriers to seeking supports. Anti-oppressive practice can enable us to work with these students as it affirms their histories and experiences while providing them with the necessary mental health supports to flourish in post-secondary education. This session will give participants the opportunity to explore the concept of anti-oppressive practice, how it intersects with campus mental health, and why it’s a critical practice at all levels of the university
