This DVD has been prepared as an aid to promoting equality and valuing diversity to be used by training facilitators, tutors and teachers involved in helping people to appreciate the complexities of discrimination. It is intended to help learners to be in a stronger position to avoid the difficulties of oversimplification that have dogged efforts to promote equality over the years.
Neil Thompson’s work on ‘PCS analysis’ has become a mainstay of teaching on numerous degree courses around the UK and further afield. His ideas have been highly praised for producing a coherent analytical framework that helps us to understand that discrimination is not simply a matter of personal prejudice. The reality is much more complex than this insofar as discrimination can be seen to operate at three separate but interconnected levels: Personal, Cultural and Structural (hence the term, PCS analysis).
Over the years Neil has been one of many people who has been critical of oversimplified and dogmatic approaches to discrimination that have alienated so many people and discredited so many efforts to promote equality and value diversity. In this presentation Neil clearly explains the basis of PCS analysis and, in so doing, reinforces the idea that tackling discrimination is an important undertaking, but needs a sophisticated understanding to prevent the problems that have featured in this field in the past (and still do in some quarters). PCS analysis offers the basis for that more sophisticated understanding. This DVD should therefore be seen as an essential resource for everyone involved in education and training geared towards promoting equality and valuing diversity.
Dr Neil Thompson is well-known in the people professions as an author, trainer, consultant and conference speaker. He has over 150 publications to his name, including several bestselling books. He has held full or honorary professorships at four UK universities and is currently a director of Avenue Consulting Ltd.
