Microaggressions
in Everyday Life

8/6/19

Purpose:

This presentation explores the concept, impacts, and solutions for addressing “microagressions.” Significant psychological research has been conducted on microaggressions, including the work of American psychologist Dr. Derald Wing Sue. The term microaggressions refers to “the brief and everyday slights, insults, indignities and denigrating messages sent to minority populations by well-intentioned, majority populations who are unaware of the hidden messages being communicated.” While microaggessions are often small and subtle behaviors, they can have a significant detrimental impact on those who experience them on a daily basis.

Learning objectives:
By the conclusion of this workshop, participants will: 

  1. Have a solid understanding of the concept “microaggressions”
  2. Be more familiar with the history, types, and unconscious biases related to microaggressions
  3. Be more familiar with common examples of microaggressions and the populations experiencing these acts
  4. Understand the psychological impacts of microaggressions
  5. Have a greater understanding of ways to reduce and challenge microaggressions
