The New England Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC), and the New England Association of Recovery Court Professionals (NEARCP), are hosting a new webinar for criminal justice professionals.
Many of us believe that we evaluate and treat people fairly. However, despite our best intentions, we often show bias – racial, gender, and otherwise – with profound effects on how we see and interact with the world around us. This session will consider social-psychological strategies to reduce bias and its impact on decision-making and outcomes and discuss ways they might be implemented in organizational contexts. Attendees should be prepared to share and discuss knowledge of their organization’s existing guidelines, processes, and procedures that currently contribute to group-based disparities. Together, we will consider how strategies might be implemented to reduce these disparities.
