Get to know the sociopolitical context behind microaggressions
Microaggressions are brief, everyday exchanges that send
denigrating messages to certain individuals because of their group
membership (e.g., race, gender, culture, religion, social class,
sexual orientation, etc.). These daily, common manifestations of
aggression leave many people feeling vulnerable, targeted, angry,
and afraid. How has this become such a pervasive part of our social
and political rhetoric, and what is the psychology behind it? In
Microaggression Theory, the original research team that created the
microaggressions taxonomy, Gina Torino, David Rivera, Christina
Capodilupo, Kevin Nadal, and Derald Wing Sue, address these issues
head-on in a fascinating work that explores the newest findings of
microaggressions in their sociopolitical context. It delves into
how the often invisible nature of this phenomenon prevents
perpetrators from realizing and confronting their own complicity in
creating psychological dilemmas for marginalized groups, and
discusses how prejudice, privilege, safe spaces, and cultural
appropriation have become themes in our contentious social and
political discourse. Details the psychological effects of
microaggressions in separate chapters covering clinical impact,
trauma, related stress syndromes, and the effect on perpetrators
Examines how microaggressions affect education, employment, health
care, and the media Explores how social policies and practices can
minimize the occurrence and impact of microaggressions in a range
of environments Investigates how microaggressions relate to larger
social movements If you come across the topic of microaggressions
