Transcript of Discriminatory Practice

Stereotyping is when an assumption is made by an individual, this could be encouraged by adults without even knowing. An example of stereotyping would be e.g. A member of a gang of one group must be the same as another member of a gang from a different group. If someone who hangs around with someone with a bad reputation they also may be thought to be the same as that person for just hanging around with them. Another example of stereotyping would be calling someone who has blond hair a dumb blonde, this is an assumption made by someone assuming that all blondes are dumb. This makes the person feel like they are not good enough when they are actually clever.
Prejudice is a judgement made by someone without knowing any facts, its judging someone before you even know anything about them. You may have these thoughts towards someone if they may look different to you or dress different towards you or other people around you. e.g. Someone you see wearing a 'hoodie', you may automatically think they are rough and bad. Another example would be that a teacher may treat students different to each other e.g. they may favouritise a white student better then a mixed raced student. This would cause the white student to think that its ok to be prejudice towards different coloured people and it may make them think that they are superior and think that mixed race people are inferior. This would be wrong as all students should be treated equally and all be respected as equals.

Covert abuse of power
Covert abuse is hidden abuse which are hidden from the individual e.g. Being verbally abusive behind someones back is covert abuse as they don't know they are being talked about. An example of covert abuse of power would be a teacher talking about a student behind their back maybe saying that they are dumb or stupid. Someone who may over hear that conversation may think that its ok to talk behind someone's back and think that they can talk behind that persons back aswell. Another example would be a nurse looking at people's case files and saying that they dont want to deal with a certain pateint for no good reason.
Overt abuse of power

Overt abuse is the exact opposite to covert abuse. Overt abuse of power is when abuse is made to someone directly e.g. Verbally abusing someone or even in extream case, hate crimes which can really damage an individuals self confidence. This has more of an effect on individuals as they know they are being overtly abused and this can cause them harm and can mentally damage them. Another example of overt abuse of power would be a teacher treating a student differently for no reason, the teacher may abuse their power and maybe keep that individual back all the time for no reason. This can make them feel that they have done something wrong when they haven't and lower their self esteem.
Bullying is making some feel inferior towards you and also at the same time making themselves feel superior. Bullying is the use of force to intimidate and abuse someone. This can can create stress, depression and can also lead to lowering someone's self confidence, which can lead to self harming and in some cases, even suicide. Bullying may include verbal insults, false stories shared about you, receiving constant criticism, physical violence, exclusion and cyber bullying which is abusive messaging by text or internet. One example of bullying would be that someone may be bullied over their background which would include where they live, what their family are like , what clothes they wear etc. Another example of someone being bullied would be someone being bullied if they have a disability and they may be bullied over how they look. This would lower someone's self confidence and make them feel like they are not good enough and this would make them want to change themselves or it could effect them mentally and turn them towards self harm or suicide.
