PRESENTATION:   We all have unconscious biases that influence the way we move through the world and how we interact with others. Despite their current unconscious nature, we can actively work to change those biases and shift our behaviors.  This will be an experiential learning presentation focused on exploring the internal mechanisms that influence how we perceive others, typically in a negative context, and how we can work to change those behaviors. Participants will be able to:

  • Learn about unconscious biases, micro-aggressions, privilege (among other similar topics) and how these impact our behaviors on a daily basis.
  • Learn about the psychological processes that perpetuate conscious and unconscious biases.

  • Explore your own unconscious biases, how they developed, and what you can do about them.

PRESENTER:  Dr. Erin Miers, PsyD graduated in 2015 from the California School of Professional Psychology in San Francisco with her PsyD and obtained her license as a clinical psychologist in 2017.  Her clinical experiences include working in substance use rehabilitation centers, with high-risk youth, and in school settings.  Her passion is for working with the LGBTQIA+ community, learning, and teaching.   She is currently a Psychologist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center within the Infectious Disease Department,  providing clinical services to individuals and couples that are seen within the infectious disease department.  She also provided clinical services at Center for Life Management as a children and adolescent clinician which included family therapy to encourage the development of healthy communication skills.
