Title: Unintentional Biases/Racism--Why Do We Fall Prey?

Description: 

On your journey to cultural competency, you have all been encouraged to exam the privileges and biases that you often are unaware of – until someone says they are offended by what you said or did.  These unconscious biases are attributed to the cultural conditioning that shapes how we look at the world and especially those who are “different” from us.  This month, we will discuss why biases are easily formed, why it takes significant self-examination to become aware of them, and why we are ALL susceptible to creating mental biases.

The Equity Institute on Race, Culture & Transformative Action at IUPUI has partnered with the Division of Mental Health & Addiction to provide an online cultural competency training program.
