Yarn #2

January 24, 2024 |  11:00 – 12:30 PM PT



During this session, we will be conversing around stigma and how we can reduce stigma in the cultures of our clinics.

What is a Yarn?

  • Yarning is a relational methodology.
  • “Yarning is more than just a story or conversation in Aboriginal culture – it is a structured cultural activity that is recognized even in research circles as a valid and rigorous methodology for knowledge production, inquiry and transmission… It has protocols of active listeningmutual respect, and building on what others have said rather than openly contradicting them or debating their ideas”. – Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World, by Tyson Yunkaporta (2020, pps. 114-116)
  • Listen here to the introduction to yarning from Yarn #1.


We expect your core ATSH Equity Collaborative team to attend. Please invite your community partner to join. ATSH Learning Network teams are also invited to join.


Come with an open heart and ready to engage in a generative conversation, with tea or a beverage if so inclined.
