Working Across Difference in the Age of Bias
by Ed Morales, MPP, MSW, LICSW
What do we see when we look at our students? Do we see future leaders? Criminals? Kids from broken homes? Does it matter? In this session, we’ll explore ideas about the origins of bias, how implicit bias shows up in schools, and what we as social workers can do to recognize and confront both personal and institutional bias. This session helps meet the MN Board of Social Work’s requirement of 1.5 Social Work Hours.
