This workshop will identify implicit bias as unconscious bias. We will define implicit bias and identify how our own preferences might be showing up. We will discuss the biology of implicit bias and how our brain registers bias. Participants will be given the links to the Harvard University Project Implicit and be invited to complete an Implicit Association Test (IAT) to identify potential bias. We will raise awareness of what our implicit/unconscious bias may be telling us. Participants will be invited to complete an Identity Wheel to identify and challenge potential areas where implicit bias and explicit bias may exist. Using action steps and strategies, participants will consider how to use the principles of mindfulness, a strength based, person-centered approach as beneficial in creating new attitudes regarding implicit bias, particularly in the role of a peer professional. Participants will be introduced to ways of practicing radical acceptance, unconditional positive regard and compassion using the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing as a peer professional. This training is 2 hour training adapted from a 12 hour Cultural Competence training developed by CCSI and OASAS.
2 Hours ASAPNYCB approved for CARC Elective and all CARC and CRPA renewal credits. Pending Social Work credits. OASAS CASAC, CPP, CPS renewal credits available.
