Promoting diversity and inclusion has become a top priority in many areas of the criminal justice system. However, microaggressions, which are subtle, covert forms of discrimination, may influence interactions with clients and co-workers and contribute to detrimental impacts within these environments. Research shows that when microaggressions are directly addressed, the performance, cohesion, and outcomes of workplace teams are enhanced.

The training will begin with a section on bias and inclusivity, engaging attendees in an examination of our implicit biases, actions, and responses and focusing on how attendees can utilize appropriate self-disclosure and encourage productive dialog in order to promote optimal learning and improved insight. Dr. Warner will provide useful strategies for responding to microaggressions and offer techniques to avoid unintentionally perpetuating covert forms of discrimination. Personal self-care strategies will also be discussed. Finally, the training will focus on enhancing workplace culture by boosting organizational practices to create a more inclusive culture.

Training topics include:
1) Unconscious bias
2) Racial microaggressions
3) Intersectionality
4) Blind spots
5) Cultural awareness
6) Culturally-responsive, evidenced-based treatment
