Throughout our lives, we are exposed to millions of messages about the world around us – messages that shape our perceptions of people, places, concepts and ideas. As a result, we possess implicit associations that operate unconsciously outside our awareness and often conflict with our explicit beliefs. This workshop will equip participants with a deeper understanding of our unconscious mental processing and the ways in which these implicit associations impact our decision-making.

Training will be led by Lena Tenney and Robin A. Wright, researchers and facilitation specialists at Ohio State University’s Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity.

This workshop is presented by the Theological Commons at MTSO, which promotes the sharing of knowledge and experience between students, faculty, clergy and the public for the benefit of all participants and those they serve.

Methodist Theological School in Ohio provides theological education and leadership in pursuit of a just and sustainable world. In addition to the Master of Divinity degree, the school offers master’s degrees in counseling, theological studies and practical theology, along with a Doctor of Ministry degree.
