Summary

In this seminar, we will discuss what implicit bias is and how it operates in everyday life. Participants will learn how each of us can recognize our biases and break the link between implicit bias and prejudiced actions. We'll talk about one approach to working with people from varied backgrounds and experiences — cultural humility. Participants will also be introduced to the DSM-5 Cultural Formulation Interview and learn how to incorporate it into their clinical practices. Resources for learning more about topics discussed and taking action on what is learned will be shared. We will also have time for discussion and to learn from each other.
