The Harmful Effect Of Unconscious Bias
Describe a typical work scenario based on your psychology specialization. For example, if your specialization is clinical psychology, a typical work situation may be providing therapy to a group of low-income pregnant mothers. Make sure that your scenario includes a person of a different race and ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation from your own.
- How might you unknowingly convey prejudice, bias, and discrimination in that situation?
- How do power and privilege factor into the situation you described?
- What do you need to do to avoid this kind of situation as much as possible?
