Webinar Series: Deconstructing Unconscious Bias in Behavioral Health Care / Session 2: Making the Case to Identify, Not Blame

Building off the psychological framework of unconscious bias as discussed in the first session, this second presentation will review and inform on how unconscious bias is reflected in words, communications, and relations toward persons of color through case scenarios reflecting its impact in the addiction, mental health, and prevention settings. The elusiveness of cognitive bias underscores provider assumptions and perceptions and affect judgment that lead to prejudice, micro-aggressions, and even discriminatory practices in care. The discussion will also identify commonly experienced pressures of personal and ‘on the  job’ stress, and other bias risk factors that affect decision making, interactions and client/patient outcomes in behavioral health. 

Credits: Each session meets the requirements for 1.5 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 1.5 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). The NJ Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services offers reciprocity for CADC, LCADC, and LPC. SW CEUs will be available for LMSWs and LCSWs through New York State Education Department’s Board for Social Work. Participants must attend the session in its entirety to receive a certificate of completion.
