Understanding and Addressing Implicit Bias in the Justice System

Implicit bias is the automatic association we make between groups of people and stereotypes about those groups. None of us are immune to this and under certain conditions, these automatic associations can influence behavior, making people respond in biased ways even when they are not explicitly prejudiced.  This training will demonstrate that it is possible to mend the harm that racial stereotypes do to our minds and our public safety and offer ways to address it.
