Implicit Bias in College Counseling – Free Course Being Offered to all High School Counselors

UCLA Extension is offering a free course to all Counselors – “Implicit Bias in College Counseling”. The webinar will allow participants to identify and interrupt biases in their role as college counseling professionals.

About the Course – Implicit bias affects how we interact with the world, take in information, and make decisions. Our biases inform how we view our students and the resulting guidance we offer. Whether in your first or 40th year in college counseling, this course offers you the opportunity to renew and reaffirm your alignment and commitment to the NACAC College Counseling Competencies by confronting this subconscious phenomenon.

What Counselors Will Learn – 1. Understand what implicit bias in college advising looks like. 2. Identify how and when implicit bias shows up in your professional life. 3. Understand how implicit bias can negatively affect your students. 4. Learn how to combat and debase implicit bias in the work you do with your students
