Part 2: Bias and Stigma in Healthcare (must take Part 1 first)

Reflecting on their own experiences, participants will be asked to examine why they have acted in certain ways and how their past experiences have shaped them. Self-reflection will assist in perspective taking, allowing participants to consider what it is like to be in someone else’s situation and to empathize with their experiences. Key components of this training include:

    • Identifying and comparing components of explicit and implicit bias.
    • Using self-reflection as a critical tool for perspective taking and creating change.
    • Investigating how discrimination affects more than just the victims.
    • Exploring “maladaptive” or “distorted” thinking habits and how to modify them.
