Implicit Bias: Understanding the Impact of What We Don’t See

10:00am - August 12, 2022 | Timezone: US/Eastern
Northeast & Caribbean PTTC
Registration Deadline:

Description: Research suggests that race and ethnicity are predictors of how services are delivered, and implicit bias is one component that has been identified as influencing the provision of poor care. The elusiveness of unconscious bias underscores provider perception, unwitting use of stigmatic language, and influences assumptions and microaggressions affecting a person's capacity to respond to care. This interactive 2-hour training will discuss how cognitive bias develops, is sustained by intrinsic and environmental factors, and contributes to inequitable outcomes for persons of color. The content will also inform on bias-reducing techniques and person-first language approaches that can enhance provider-client interactions and outcomes for marginalized communities.

Trainer: Diana Padilla, CLC, CARC is a Research Project Manager at New York State Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University Medical Center. She is a senior staff trainer for the Northeast & Caribbean Addiction Transfer Technology Center Network (NeC-ATTC) and provides training and technical assistance on implementation of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT), and Equity & Inclusion capacity building opportunities.
