This webinar series is a collaboration between the Northeast and Caribbean MHTTC, the Northeast and Caribbean ATTC, and the Northeast and Caribbean PTTC.

 

In the first two sessions, we define and describe the impact of unconscious bias on cognition and provider practice, as well as how it contributes to behavioral health disparities. This third session will offer practical tools and strategies for organizations and providers to identify and address unconscious bias and support the delivery of culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS). Discussion will present action steps that providers can take to explore and diffuse personal bias, and further inform on how integrating cultural humility in practice minimizes unconscious bias using a process-oriented approach to care consequently increasing behavioral health equity.
