    "Moving from Theoretical to Anti-Racism to Practice"

    Dana E. Crawford, Ph.D.
    Clinical Psychologist
    Columbia University

Everyone has (a) biases related to their culturally held assumptions and values; (b) attitudes related to cultural identities (e.g., race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, etc.,); and (c) worldviews, which include their political, health, religious, financial, and moral values. The reactions individuals have when bias, prejudice and racism are activated manifests internally through thoughts, feelings, and/or externally through various behaviors; therefore, unprocessed, and poorly managed bias, prejudice and racism reactions can be detrimental to clients/customers as well as individual functioning. The goal of this presentation is for participants to have more awareness of their biases and concrete skills to reduce the impact of their biases.
