Implicit biases are cognitive traces that are created by past experiences and impact our current performance. Regretfully they may compromise efforts to foster and maintain intercultural competence. This session will highlight best practices informed by social psychology research for understanding and monitoring implicit biases and promoting a diversity-centered practice.

Learning Objectives:
1. Define implicit bias.
2. Explain at least one strategy to assess implicit bias.
3. Describe at least three awareness-raising and prejudice-reduction exercises that can lead to the lessening of implicit biases.

This program is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and graduate students. It will be presented at an intermediate level, meant for those with some prior knowledge of the subject matter. The presenter does not have any commercial support and/ or conflict of interest for this program.

His research and clinical interests are in the areas of Latinx, multicultural and family psychology, program development, pedagogy, and motivational enhancement.
