Webinar Description

Everyone has racial biases either conscious or unconscious, whether individuals act on them explicitly or not. It is critical as social workers to uphold ethical duties by collectively acknowledging and challenging implicit biases within micro, mezzo and macro social work and intentionally exercising mindful practices promoting equality and social justice.

This workshop will explore implicit biases, microaggressions and unconscious stereotypes in order to highlight the impact that such practices have on the social worker and client relationship. It is of special interest to helping professionals to challenge Western cultural practices of racism, oppression and injustice influencing the profession so as to not cause further damage by way of retraumatization and revictimization of vulnerable and marginalized clients and client systems.
