Whether our clients are aware of it or not, they all have biases. We also know that the less aware they are, the more impact those biases have. Regardless of the circumstances, helping our clients fully understand how implicit biases develop, and how to have a healthier relationship with them is essential to their healing process.

Come and discover the powerful link between implicit biases and the healing process. Please join us. Uncover what’s been lurking underneath.

What you’ll learn

At the end of this online seminar, you will have:
  • Learned what implicit bias is, how to recognize it, and ways to understand and assess for it.
