Join the Revolution in Caring: Uncover, Manage, Master Human Biases is Yolanda Speaks signature training. All advocates benefit from accessing her or his internalized biases, and how these biases may interfere with one’s ability to provide high quality client/survivor-centered care across human differences. This training is a very interactive introduction to seriously addressing personal human biases. Throughout the training, participants are asked to “self-examine”, “self-inventory”, or “self-reflect." The training is rooted in the principles of emotional intelligence, especially the foundational principle of self-awareness. We strongly believe that any attempts at solving problems around human biases that do not begin with a serious commitment to self-awareness- through some form of self-examination process- has fallen short of the mark. In this training, each activity (First Thought, Personal Identity Set, I.D. Privilege) aids in the process of self-discovery and management.
