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 those who support system-involved youth and families and identify four objective processes to engage the families. This training will support those who support system involved youth and families with identifying bias in writing and reading of 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.
