Don't miss this opportunity to expand your knowledge and understanding of equality and diversity by joining this two-hour webinar on 'Unconscious Bias'.

Following on from your feedback from the 2020 FHT Equality and Diversity Survey, FHT took a critical look at equality and diversity within the industry and discussed actions we can all take to improve inclusivity, within the 'Accessible to All' article in the Autumn issue of International Therapist Magazine. We also pledged to organise training on the topic of equaliy and diversity within your therapy practice.  

FHT are delighted to be offering this exciting opportunity to broaden your understanding of inclusivity by exploring the concept of 'Unconscious Bias' via a two-hour webinar. Within this session you will:

  • Identify your own biases and accept that bias exists in all of us
  • Recognise and understand how unconscious bias might play out in practice, clinic and with other clients
  • Have a clear plan to challenge your own bias behaviours, and developing more inclusive behaviours

FHT are delighted to be able to offer this webinar at a discounted rate of £10 to the first 100 members who sign up. (Webinar price would usually be £35)
