Channels of Hope Workshop Report, Resdoc House Hillbrow, Johannesburg, 27 November 2010
The way CABSA material is designed is such that it challenges individuals own attitudes and perspectives, and this happened. It was not the usual workshop that some had been exposed to but through the different activities, participants appreciated its difference, uniqueness and that it is Christian specific as well.
Taking from participants comments, they felt that this was very educational and informative and it somehow made them also think of how as a church there is a serious lack of knowledge and information on the subject.
Activities like the HCQ, stigma pictures, 3 scenarios made them realise how they are a part of this cause and helped them stop pointing to others for answers but to themselves and they could see how they could take part in the response to HIV.
