Attendees will review evidence of implicit bias through illustrations of the neuroscience of implicit bias; will be able to describe the types of bias; and will 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 practice. The material will be delivered by PowerPoint presentation, short video clips, group discussion, breakout (small group) discussions and participant workbook (handout).
