Description

Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, that we may not be aware of, can influence our interactions with our clients; how we diagnose, screen, respond to crisis, and treat them. Mental health professionals work with diverse populations and understanding how implicit bias impacts our decision making is key to providing ethical services and quality client-centered care. During this webinar we will explore different types of unconscious biases. Discussions and activities will assist participants in examining their own personal biases and how these biases impact everyday interactions in various settings (school, work, health care, justice system, etc.) Case studies will be utilized to increase participants awareness of the effects of implicit bias on our clients; and strategies to reduce unconscious bias will be discussed.
