Implicit Bias, Understanding the Impact of What We Don't See

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 two-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.

Credits: This training meets approval for two renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and two initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State‚Äôs Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS), and is also approved for two CPRA/CARC certification hours through ASAP-NYCB. As an IC & RC member board, OASAS accredited courses are granted reciprocal approval by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Counselor Committee. Many other states offer reciprocity - please check with your accrediting agency.
