Blind Spots: Applying diversity, equity, and inclusion practices with clients

Course Overview:
Blind spots are interactions with others, often called implicit, or unconscious, biases. They are the attitudes or stereotypes that affect understanding, actions, and decisions. As social beings, people develop preferences toward certain people, and these preferences may be unintentional. However, holding negative beliefs about others in ways we’re not actively thinking about could unintentionally invalidate the clients’ experiences. For health care and social service providers, blind spots may predict behavior. When these blind spots remain unchecked, they can impact interpersonal interactions, in some cases leading to biased decision-making or unintentionally invalidating a clients’ experiences.
