Cognitive and Implicit Bias Applied to Family Law:
Shedding the Baggage of Cognitive, Implicit and Cultural Biases
Scientists have learned that neuropsychology, social cognition, and cultural factors affect decision-making. Two types of neuro-psychologically rooted bias can impact how we reason, infer and decide. Cognitive bias refers to heuristics, such as anchoring or confirmatory bias, which contribute to oversimplifying complex matters. Implicit bias and cultural bias refers to social attitudes that result in rapid, and involuntary assessments resulting from feelings and attitudes that operate out of our awareness or the lack of understanding of how people whose experiences are different may affect those inferences and decisions. Professional ethics and Guidelines, and Rules of Court, require professionals to manage potential biases. This webinar will explore such biases as well as research-based debiasing strategies, which are not as simple as knowing to account for potential biases.
