'Accidental Racists' - and Other Elephants in the Room: Taking an Honest Look at Implicit Bias in the Healthcare Profession

*Registration payment includes Credit Cards and Interfund Transfers ONLY.

Target Audience

Social workers, psychologists, licensed professional counselors, educators, school personnel, mental health professionals, clinicians, health and human service practitioners, and other health care professionals.

Description

One of the most critical, yet perhaps neglected, aspects of being a healthcare professional is the challenge of creating sustainable relationships with clients/patients of different races, socioeconomic classes, cultural or religious backgrounds, sexual orientations, abilities, and many other groups. Even the simplest of encounters can often leave social workers, counselors, doctors, and nurses or their clients or patients feeling confused, frustrated, offended, or (worst of all) seriously hurt—even when everyone involved began with the best of intentions.

This workshop explores the ways implicit bias can affect how we interact with folks who are different from us in various ways. Taking a cue from the groundbreaking and controversial song, “Accidental Racist,” by country music superstar Brad Paisley and hip-hop legend-turned-television actor, LL Cool J, this program provides a forum for an honest, authentic dialogue about the ways that implicit bias may show up, the impact it can have, where it comes from, and what we can do to be more mindful of it.

The program utilizes poignant clips from high-quality films (including 2005 Best Picture winner, Crash, and Best Picture nominee, Up in the Air) as the starting point for a highly interactive discussion, and an opportunity for participants to collaborate in discovering practical, more effective ways of meeting this particular challenge.

Faculty:
Michael Kahn, LPC, JD
