You spot it you got it! Critical Thinking - Encouraging it in Ourselves and Others
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM: Breakout
Critical thinking is often cited as one of the most important skills human service staff can have -- but the conversation typically ends there, without a clear definition of critical thinking or steps to help build it. This experiential workshop will provide a tangible framework for understanding and applying critical thinking in a human service context. Learn the elements of thought, intellectual standards, ethical traits of critical thinking, and how to recognize common types of bias in ourselves and others. Participants will learn practical steps to increase their own critical thinking and evaluate their own and others' thinking and decision-making.
