Child Custody mental health providers, lawyers and Judicial Officers will benefit from learning how to recognize and control for Implicit Bias in their work. Implicit bias is a result of neurobiological mechanisms that can restrict an individual's ability to be open to multiple perspectives. Implicit Bias activates stereotypes, and associations that exist outside conscious awareness that may adversely influence the health of minority, underserved, and stigmatized populations. Unconsciously held biases, also known as implicit biases, and Micro Aggressions, may lead to inaccurate or compromised clinical decisions and an erosion of trust between health professionals and patients due to poor interpersonal interactions and biased behaviors. Implicit bias in health care has been demonstrated in several studies. For example, among 202 first-year medical students at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, 66% showed an implicit preference toward Caucasians, and 86% demonstrated a preference toward upper class individuals. Among practicing physicians, another study found that, despite consciously expressing explicit egalitarian goals, physicians were less likely to recommend thrombolysis to African American patients, as compared with Caucasians with similar symptoms. Other work has highlighted that bias adversely impacts women, obese individuals, fathers, patients with chronic pain, and patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Implicit Bias and Micro Aggressions may also impact the outcomes of patients receiving mental health services.
