October 28, 2021, 1-2:30 PM EST
Intuitive Generalization in the form of stereotyping is part of the human condition. Our brains use cognitive schemas every day to help us to make sense of differences in others. Generalizing is as routine as any other cognitive function. The challenge with generalizing is that decisions are made on presumptions that are not necessarily true of each individual but are believed to be true based on their group membership. Treating people based on assumptions can lead to negative bias, prejudice ,and ultimately discrimination of BIPOC. This workshop deals with strategies to help us identify and limit our implicit prejudices through cultural empathy (openness, mutuality, and understanding).
- Define implicit prejudice and the impact of BIPOC in behavioral health.
- Understand implicit prejudice as natural and part of the human condition.
- Examine implicit prejudices that we may possess and use strategies to limit them in our everyday interactions with those we serve.
- Discuss Cultural Empathy as a tool for understanding and appreciation of diversity to overcome prejudicial ideas, attitude, opinions and beliefs.
