Quentin R. Tyler, Ph.DSpeaker Bio
In response to the Public Health Crisis that is racism, the Michigan legislature has required all healthcare professionals to receive training on the topic of implicit bias. In this workshop, Dr. Quentin Tyler will provide professionals in the counseling field substantive training regarding the issue of implicit bias and how it relates to their areas of practice.
This workshop will define implicit bias and lead participants to recognize and understand how it impacts perception, judgment, and actions that may result in inequitable decision-making, failure to communicate effectively, and barriers and disparities in accessing and delivering counseling-related services.
Dr. Tyler will review historical trauma, intersectionality, micro-assaults, microinsults, micro-preventions, micro-validations, and micro-interventions. The workshop will also examine the manifestation of implicit bias on the micro, mezzo, and macro levels and the power structures and processes that cultivate a culture of bias.
Participants will be given strategies for mitigating implicit bias by applying reduction skills to case studies and personally biased experiences. Participants will also be encouraged to develop an action plan to implement the skills learned in the course into their clinical practice, social and cultural foundations, counselor professional identity, practice issues, wellness, and prevention.
The educational goal of this presentation is for participants to gain knowledge in implicit bias, equitable access to health care, serving a diverse population, diversity and inclusion initiatives, and cultural sensitivity.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify at least 3 strategies to remedy the negative impact of implicit bias.
- Describe 5 ways implicit bias negatively impacts the counselors or clients.
- Examine the historical basis of implicit bias and identify at least 2 ways present consequences impact client experiences.
- Summarize current research on the effect implicit bias has on access to and delivery of counseling psychotherapy services.
