Everyone has (a) biases related to their culturally held assumptions and values; (b) attitudes related to cultural identities (e.g., race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, etc.,); and (c) worldviews, which include their political, health, religious, financial, and moral values. The reactions individuals have when bias, prejudice and racism are activated manifests internally through thoughts, feelings, and/or externally through various behaviors; therefore, unprocessed, and poorly managed bias, prejudice and racism reactions can be detrimental to clients/customers as well as individual functioning.
1. Understand the ethical obligation for all mental health providers to strive to become anti-racists

3. Apply the LET-UP framework to reduce bias and respond effectively to challenging interactions

The Delaware Psychological Association (DPA) recognizes the ethical imperative of fostering a psychologist community that reflects and represents those we serve. As such, DPA is committed to supporting students and professionals historically and currently underrepresented in the study and practice of psychology. Specifically, we are looking to reduce barriers for students who identify as Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) who do not reap the unearned benefits afforded students with white identity. Students who identify as BIPOC who wish to attend the 2020 Annual DPA Convention featuring Dr. Dana Crawford and the consequences of racism, prejudice, and bias, are welcome to attend at no charge. Student admission will instead be funded by membership donations.
If you would like to include a $25 donation to fund student admission, please include your donation upon online registration in the noted field.
If you are unable to donate $25, but would like to be included in future DPA initiatives to foster inclusion and dismantle the consequences of racism, please include this information upon online registration in the noted field.
The DPA plans and promotes programs serving the continuing educational needs of psychologists and professionals across a variety of disciplines.
