Developing Reflection Skills
Program staff needs to be aware of their unconscious biases and prejudices so they can understand and inform the way they interact with youth. Reflection is a tool that helps an individual think about their actions, thoughts, and statements, and ultimately gain insight.
|Understanding Bias and Values
Everyone has had biases or been prejudiced at some time in their lives. Implicit or unconscious bias and prejudices are part of the unconscious decision-making part of the brain. Youth program staff need to understand themselves to overcome any unconscious biases that work against an open and welcoming youth program.
