  • SAGE Show 2018: Implicit (Unconscious) Bias Overview

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1 credit offered

    Implicit bias refers to attitudes and stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions and decisions in an unconscious—often negative—manner. These biases are activated involuntarily and without our awareness or intentional control. We’ve all heard people say: “that’s not me;” “that’s not who I am;” “I would never do something like that.” But evidence shows that this is who we are, albeit unintentionally. The fact that these biases are unconscious makes it all the more challenging to overcome them. Join Dr. Riley Harvill for this session as he discusses how to overcome implicit bias, including first steps such as stereotype replacement, individuation, perspective taking and contact.
