Review recent news articles to find at least two examples of discrimination experienced by two different special populations (e.g., LGBTQ+, clients with physical disabilities) that have occurred in our nation over the past 5 years.
Imagine that you have been asked to make a presentation at your job or a community event.
Review recent news articles to find at least two examples of discrimination experienced by two different special populations (e.g., LGBTQ+, clients with physical disabilities) that have occurred in our nation over the past 5 years. Research what happened after the initial incident of discrimination.
Part 1: Digital Presentation
Create a 7-10-slide PowerPoint with the following content:
Describe what took place in the discrimination issue.
Describe whether there was a long-term outcome?
How might these two groups experience prejudice in the behavioral health setting and what can be done to avoid such discrimination, (e.g., A client who utilized American Sign Language [ASL] may not be able to find an ASL therapist in their community. A therapist may seek out training in ASL or they may find an interpreter to aid in the therapy session).
Include four resources. In addition to your two news articles, a minimum of two scholarly resources.
Follow the PowerPoint presentation guidelines that are found in Course Resources.
Title slide and reference slide are not included in the slide count. Include speaker notes below each content-related slide that represents what would be said if giving the presentation in person. Expand upon the information included in the slide and do not simply restate it. Please ensure the speaker noted include a minimum of 150 words.
