Description

Bias, whether explicit or implicit, is endemic to American life. It affects our systems, our institutions, and our relationships. When implicit bias frames the patient-provider relationship, however, the results can be catastrophic. In this session, we will evaluate the concept of implicit bias, demonstrate how it leads to disparate outcomes in healthcare, and explore practices aimed at eliminating bias in our professional and personal lives.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Psychologists
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
  • Physicians
Educational Goal

The educational goal of this workshop is for participants to understand the impact of implicit bias and learn
ways to eliminate it.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how biases are formed and identify two common types of bias.

  • Explain the connection between bias and disparate healthcare.

  • Identify two ways in which their own practices are affected by bias.

  • Identify two skills for mitigating personal bias and two ways to intervene when bias is observed in colleagues.
