11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Live Presentation via Zoom
This talk will show how unconscious processes, now accepted in psychological science and practice, were ignored and/or denied for so long. There will be a listing of current areas of systematic research into unconscious processes, and clinical implications of each will be discussed. There will also be a demonstration of their operation. Finally, some political findings, obtained by assessing unconscious associations, will be examined.
As a result of participating in this activity, learners should be able to:
- Explain why the concept of the unconscious has been resisted historically
- Review the areas of empirical research that study unconscious processes
- Discuss implications of unconscious processes to bias, politics, and clinical practice
