Resources on Implicit Bias

The term implicit bias plays a prominent role in both national and local conversations about conflict resolution. Often, it is used without an accompanying explanation of the term's definition or the ways it actually appears in our everyday lives. Implicit bias refers to all of the internalized beliefs that affect our decisions in an unconscious manner. Clearly, implicit bias is an important topic to have an awareness of as community mediators and peacemakers. However, it can be a difficult to explain implicit bias as well as to come to terms with its implications for community mediation work.


If you are struggling to begin a conversation about implicit bias (or just want additional resources for personal growth and reflection), NAFCM is excited to share a compiled list of resources for our members to help them to more fully engage with the topic of implicit bias. You can also find this information as a downloadable PDF.

Some of the Basic Mediation Training manuals in the NAFCM Clearinghouse touch on implicit bias and cultural differences:

Additionally, here are a few articles from our partners at that may be helpful:

If you have other resources on the topic of implicit bias that you would like to share, please email and let us know! At NAFCM, we are always eager to share the wisdom of our member centers with the nationwide community of peacemakers and community mediators.
