Mental health professionals bring knowledge and skills that support and treat patients and clients. We also bring ourselves into the work, including our stereotypes, biases and opinions. Guided by the National Association of Social Workers Ethics and Values, this training will introduce the topics of power theory and implicit bias in mental health service delivery. We will discuss tips and techniques that can help reduce biases from negatively impacting decision making.
Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:
- Understand and define "Power Over" vs. "Power With"
- Examine backgrounds, experiences and/or behaviors that influence biases.
- Examine and explore ways to reduce implicit bias in service delivery.
