 Neurobiology of Implicit Bias & Transgenerational Trauma

Class 1 - 10:00am-1:00pm EST (3 CE Credits)

 

In part one, the instructor will ask participants to apply their own experiences to generate a personal framework for building an understanding of implicit bias.  Part one will begin with determining a common definition of implicit bias and then move toward evaluation of how our individual socialization creates the neural underpinnings of implicit bias.  Our conversation will move towards understanding the neurobiological processes of implicit bias with the goal of creating a working model of brain processes.  This model can be used as a guide to aid in articulating how differential brain function can ultimately generate an opinion/strong feeling about an individual or group of people without conscious recognition of the cognitive process. 

 

Part two will build upon the understanding of implicit bias and begin to connect how implicit biases inform racism and transgenerational trauma.  To understand how systemic racism can result in transgenerational trauma, one must have an awareness of the neurobiology of threat detection and stress physiology.  An overview of the threat detection systems and stress physiology will be provided and used as a framework to provide insight how it feels to experience racism or discrimination.  With an understanding of the bodily senses that are associated with being the target of racism or discrimination, the conversation will focus on US history to provide a perspective of how systemic racism in the US continues to give rise to transgenerational trauma for Black Americans.  Given current events in the US, this discussion will focus on issues of Black Americans, however principles of implicit bias, threat detection and stress response are data of human physiology and neurobiology.  Therefore, these principles can be applied to any human of any marginalized identity, hopefully helping us all have a little more awareness of our own body processes and reactions thereby giving a choice about what we do next…

Cannabis and Mental Health

Class 2-  1:45pm - 4:45pm (3 CE Credits)

 

This presentation will help participants understand how cannabis affects mental health and why people with mental health difficulties use this drug. We will explore options for supporting cannabis users in social service settings. Cannabis is more available across North America than ever before and there are many misconceptions about the effects of this drug on mental health. Participants will receive an overview of the research examining the relation between cannabis and stress, trauma, common health difficulties, and a variety of mental health concerns.

This overview will lead into material on clinical assessment, education, treatment, and harm reduction strategies with cannabis consumers. Material will cover topics including the effects of cannabis use on stress, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, pain, anger, psychosis, and more. There will be implications for engagement, education, applying evidence-informed therapies for cannabis use disorder, and relapse prevention.
