Understanding Ways That Implicit Bias Can Influence Mental Health Treatment

Implicit Bias is defined as an unconscious association, belief, or attitude towards any social group.  It can lead to stereotyping and since it occurs at an unconscious level, it may not be fully intentional and may be difficult to recognize or control.

The purpose of this class is to help raise awareness of how implicit bias affects us all.  We need to find ways to recognize this bias and to guard against its consequences.  We also need to discuss ways to appreciate people from different backgrounds and cultures. Participants will look at how cultural differences can affect the diagnosing of psychiatric conditions and clinical treatment.
