It is possible to create a society in which our collective safety and wellbeing are prioritised. Developing trusting, healthy relationships with all of our patients is essential to this work.
However, Prevent ─ with the government’s stated aim of identifying “vulnerability to radicalisation” ─ compromises all of this, and is a source of harm and increased marginalisation.
Why is the NHS the only healthcare system in the world with a legal obligation to engage with such a strategy? What aren’t you being told about Prevent in safeguarding training?
Join our Alternative Training on Prevent online on Monday 29th March at 6pm to learn more
This training will seek to shed light on some unanswered questions about Prevent. We will hear from:
- Members of Medact’s Securitisation of Health Group (SHG)
- Dr Tarek Younis ─ a cultural and clinical critical psychologist and lecturer in psychology
- Marcelo Camus ─ member of Medact’s SHG, a social practice artist and co-founder and organiser of the Social Art Network
- Reem Abu-Hayyeh ─ Campaigns and Policy Lead: Peace and Security at Medact
This event is particularly aimed at people who work or are training in, study, or who have worked in health.
