4.       Identify at least three negative impacts of stigma on access to care, retention in care and health outcomes for the people you serve;

5.       Identify the link between stigma, discrimination, and trauma;

6.       Describe the principles of trauma-informed care as they relate to providing stigma-free, affirming services;

7.       Enter dialogue with colleagues, supervisors, and people you supervise about moving from a judgment based mindset to the approach of providing affirming services.
