Integrating Implicit Bias into Counselor Education
Boysen, Guy A.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v49 n4 p210-227 Jun 2010
The author reviews the empirical and theoretical literature on implicit bias as it relates to counselor education. Counselor educators can integrate implicit bias into the concepts of multicultural knowledge, awareness, and skill. Knowledge about implicit bias includes its theoretical explanation, measurement, and impact on counseling. Awareness of implicit bias requires specialized assessment independent of self-reported bias. Skills related to implicit bias include intentionality in thought and behavior and long-term commitment to changing biased thought patterns.
