CBRT & Addressing a Broken System of Social Identities with Dr. Dana Crawford – Episode 258

Racism, prejudice, and bias forms a barrier to people’s true humanity. How could your biases prevent you from behaving in ways that are in line with your values? In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Dr. Dana Crawford. Dana is a pediatric and clinical psychologist who developed the Crawford Bias Reduction Theory & Training (CBRT), a systematic approach to reducing bias, prejudice, and racism. Dana is a graduate of Howard, Temple, and Miami Universities and has degrees in counseling, African American studies, psychology, and the arts She has certifications in practical nursing, medical hypnosis, and biofeedback. She has worked in numerous settings. In recent years, she's worked with the National Black Caucus to create legislation for black maternal health. Dana is currently a scholar in residence at Columbia University in the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and has a thriving private practice that she maintains in Manhattan. We're excited to have Dana with us today as we discuss the bias reduction theory, social identities, the shortcuts we use to decide how resources are distributed, and how this resource distribution system of social identity is broken.
