The Neuroscience of Bias

6 CEUs

(including three hours of ethics and supervision)


This conference focuses on the intersection of neuroscience and practice with a focus on bias. According to the OSU Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, “implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, which encompass both favorable and unfavorable assessments, are activated involuntarily and without an individual’s awareness or intentional control. Residing deep in the subconscious, these biases are different from known biases that individuals may choose to conceal for the purposes of social and/or political correctness.” Implicit biases can cause differential health care treatment, disproportionate contact with the corrections system, and community disparities. To understand implicit bias, the brain must be understood.
