This workshop is geared towards sensitising staff to all aspects of diversity. The aim is to have the delegates interactively gain an understanding of the power of perception â€“ both theirs and that of their clients - and explore resultant misunderstandings.
They will be equipped with the tools they require in order to diffuse problematic situations in the interest of minimising conflict and maximising resolution.
