INTRODUCTION:

Many find it difficult to talk about biases, identity and culture, especially in the context of their work with children and young people; but problems that cannot be named and discussed, cannot be solved.  

Many do not realise the impact their biases have on their decision-making, practice and interactions; at best, biases inhibit decisions that will enable high-quality practice for all children and families, at worst they result in unfairness and uphold structural inequalities within social care and beyond.  

Through stories, evidence and reflection, this webinar session will help participants understand unconscious bias and the impact these may have on their capacity to forge and maintain intra-team and practitioner-young people relationships and empathetic conversations.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

By the end of the course, delegates will:

  • Enhance their knowledge of systemic and personal biases and the impact on colleagues,  children and young people;
  • Raise awareness of key terms and concepts pertaining to cognitive biases and inequality;
  • Explore simple actions needed to ensure equity of service and mitigation of biases in  practitioner’s work with children and young people;
