Abstract

This training is designed to look at the ways in which one is privileged in society. It looks at what privilege is and how it might apply to each participant. It also touches on the complex web of privilege and the interconnectedness of all types of privilege, as well as systemic sources of privilege and how and why they are difficult to identify in society. The training introduces the concept of privilege in the many instances which it occurs (education, class, race, gender, ability, size, etc.) and helps the participants to identify how they are privileged. This will enable them to see that the non-privileged reality is something different than their own. In looking at privilege the trainer must establish trust and rapport with each participant. This is an affective as well as knowledge based training.
