During the webinar, intended for youth justice professionals, presenters will:
- Help participants understand best practices to combat implicit and internal bias
- Help participants understand how bias can influence decision-making for youth in the juvenile justice system
- Explain how professionals can help youth who are in the juvenile justice system rectify, reduce, and mitigate their own internal bias when released from the juvenile justice system
