This training will help individuals learn about and become aware of their own conscious and unconscious stereotypes, biases, attitudes, and behaviors that impact their automatic patterns of thinking and behaviors within the workplace and their personal lives. It will assist individuals to recognize, address, and overcome racial barriers within the minority populations they serve in treatment for behavioral health and substance use disorders.
