Simret Daniel from the Sexual Education and Resource Centre (SERC) will be running a workshop called Exploring a Cultural Humility Approach to Understanding Female Genital Cutting on March 9. She will be facilitating discussions about a variety of topics regarding FGC, such as:
- Types of FGC
- Beliefs about FGC
- Possible health consequences of FGC
- Women’s sexuality
- Starting the conversation with women about FGC in a culturally sensitive way
- Canadian law and FGC
- What we have learned from the communities participating in the OSOD project about decision-making, change, access to services etc.
SERC facilitates this interactive workshop at universities, non-profit organizations and settlement organizations. It is an excellent opportunity to gain a better understanding of this complex health and cultural issue that we may encounter as healthcare practitioners.
