Workshop Title: The Neuropsychology of Racism.

Workshop Description: 

Racism. Such a short word for a complex multilevel construct describing individual, systemic and societal structures of power. This presentation looks at the neurocognitive processes that feed racism on an individual level, resulting in the emotional and behavioral reactions that allow for the defense and promotion of institutional and sociocultural inequality. It will integrate research into the neuroscience of developing beliefs, attitudes, racial bias, and prejudiced reactions, with psychosocial theories of racism and postulate theories on implications for change at an individual, social and systemic level. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to describe the brain function involved in the development of beliefs and attitude toward race. 
  2. Participants will be able to explain interplay amongst brain behavior, emotional reactions and societal norms in developing racial attitudes.
  3. Participants will be able to apply knowledge of brain function to development of strategies to reduce individual racism.
  4. Participants will be able to discuss strategies to reduce societal and system racism.
