Stigma & Bias in Mental Health

Stigma and bias exist in therapy, amongst clients and therapists, and the general public. We have seen people diagnosing people on the internet forums by describing a few behaviours (and suggesting solutions, diet and drug changes) – how can this happen? Can hypnotherapists, or any therapist, be taken seriously unless open to all possibilities in 2000s?


In this hard hitting webinar we will look at –

  • How do stigma and cultural bias impact treatment, prevention & recovery?
  • Discuss the origins of understanding mental illness, how misinformation is spread, and how stigma impacts individuals and communities.
  • Discover theories of fast & slow thinking, and unconscious/conscious bias
  • Learn tips for correcting negative perceptions with a licensed therapist in this one-hour seminar.

Some of this may be hard to hear, however they exist and are not eradicated unless discussed openly with good intentions.
