Purpose of Workshop
This workshop aims to bring participants greater familiarity with current abortion stigma definitions and measurement tools at a range of levels (intrapersonal, individual, community). It will provide an overview of existing (scales) tools and methodologies for understanding stigma manifestations and measurement, as well as their strengths and weaknesses.
Participants who attend the training will be able to:
More precisely define stigma and how it manifests in members’ working context (causes/targets/consequences);
Gain familiarity with some tools to measure abortion stigma (SABAS, ILASS, CLASS, APSS) and understand some of their strengths and weaknesses
Practice the administration of a scale in groups to familiarise with how questions are posed and what kind of answers may be given
