Description

Registration Open June 21, 2021

It is important to acknowledge that if you have a brain, you have a bias. This training will focus on internal biases and how these biases affect therapeutic treatments in the workplace. We will provide a framework to define bias, determine how they are formed, discover why everyone has them, and what we can do about them. The training will also address intent versus impact and whether good intent is enough to reduce the impact of biases. We will also discuss preventative measures that can be taken to help prevent biases from interrupting client clinical experiences in our practice.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify, Recognize and Differentiate between implicit bias, colorblindness bias, poverty discipline bias, and deficit thinking bias and how we all perpetuate harm.
  2. Explain how these 4 biases show up in therapeutic work and learn strategies to mitigate biases.
  3. Prepare plans to reduce this experience in treatment.
  4. Practice prioritizing impact over intent.
