About the PDD

The purpose of these sessions is to widen your knowledge, awareness, and skills in embedding difference and diversity ‘as standard’ for all clients.

DD&A considers the social context, social identities, ecological systems, structural disadvantage, otherness, marginalisation, and empowerment aspects in relation to client problems (psycho-social-structural), especially for clients who occupy diverse intersectional identities including gender, sexuality, trans, race, culture, disability, neurodivergence, religion, nationality, and class.

The first session will introduce core anti-oppressive practice concepts and why it is vital for working with difference, diversity & inclusion work. The second session will help you begin integrating these ideas into therapeutic practice including conceptualising clients’ difficulties. The third session will then reflect on principles of practice, therapeutic pitfalls, and help you develop an ecological awareness of practice in developing a just and inclusive practice. A session role-play video will be used to reflect on learnings. The core curriculum transformation service for training providers developed under the anti-discrimination focus (#TADF) collaboration will be introduced to help situate professional transformation (See
