Attendees will: review evidence of implicit bias through illustrations of the neuroscience of implicit bias; learn how to describe the types of bias; and discuss stereotypes, prejudices, discrimination, in-group favoritism, aversive racism, and stigma. This course will assess how implicit bias creates barriers for providers working with system-involved youth and families and identify four objective processes to engage the families. This training will support providers with identifying bias in writing and reading of client documentation, comparing a stereotype threat to implicit bias, and outlining the effects and examples of stereotype threat. Attendees will review hidden biases and have a discussion on how biases influence their efforts to support system involved youth. The material will be delivered by PowerPoint presentation, short video clips, group discussion, breakout (small group) discussions and participant workbook (handout).
