How do children understand and construct stigma in the context of HIV/AIDS?: Julia

Julia Goodall is a student at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Her presentation focuses on the social process of othering, an aspect of how people perceive and construct stigma in their specific social settings. . An understanding of how and why people employ othering is integral to the success of future HIV/AIDS interventions. This study indicated that the process of othering might be a necessary psychological response which is employed in an attempt to cope with having to live with HIV/AIDS.

I acknowledge the standard of your presentation. my suggestion is that those young learners might seem to have been sent by elders to stigmatise that particular person. i think stigma reduction workshop should also be conducted at a low academic level
