Everyone has some degree of racial bias. What do we know about our biases and what remains hidden in our unconscious? How might our unconscious racial bias create ethical challenges in our social work practices? Information that improves our understanding of racism and our ability to engage in difficult conversations supports our professional ethics. This workshop will cover the basics: a primer on our racialized U.S. history and a definition of and exercises about white privilege. By learning and practicing listening and speaking with more curiosity and less judgment participants, can reduce the possibility of their biases interfering with their connections with both clients and colleagues. Ethical principles and case studies will be woven throughout the workshop, allowing for enhanced engagement with the material presented.
