Rethinking Implicit Bias Training

Rethinking Implicit Bias Training



Rethinking Implicit Bias Training critically examines the concept of implicit bias, particularly within the context of police training and the broader societal implications of racism. It guides students through the intricate world of criminal justice, highlighting contemporary issues critical to cultivating justice and empathy within the profession.

Students explore the subtle workings of implicit bias and see how it affects behavior, decision-making, and the broader landscape of law enforcement in our society. The text offers readers the information and tools they need to facilitate change within the discipline. They learn how to recognize and overcome bias, encourage open and constructive dialogues, and challenge systematic inequalities. Each chapter includes objectives, key terms, and reflective questions to facilitate deeper engagement with the content.

Rethinking Implicit Bias Training is designed to help students develop increased self-awareness and a vision for a future in which inclusivity, responsibility, and empathy are the pillars of the criminal justice system. The text is well suited for courses in criminal justice, sociology, psychology, and law enforcement training programs.
