Addressing and Avoiding Microaggressions

Price: $99.00

Who Should Take This Course

Anyone who wants to get over their fear of personally or professionally "saying the wrong thing" should take this course. Microaggressions are the unintentional things we say that just rub people the wrong way. Sometimes it registers in the subtle, passive language that reinforces a stereotype, "You're from Texas?" said in disbelief to an Asian-American born and bred in Texas. Or denouncing the cultural norms of others, "That food stinks!," said to an Indian-American who just heated up leftovers in the office microwave.

What You Will Learn

These are the little things that, over time, invalidates others' experiences or indicates disapproval of someone's differences. In this course we take a nonjudgmental look at ourselves and others so we can take the first steps needed to overcome some of the micro-challenges that prevent us from truly connecting with one another.

We also use Epoch Conversation Starters and role play to help us practice common scenarios people have shared with us over the years.

What Others Are Saying About This Course

"This session was unbelievably thought – provoking. Of course, it brings up even more questions, but I think that’s a good thing. I feel like I am learning strategies but also learning what I don’t know." ~Nicole K.  "Another informative presentation! In the past I often felt like we had such a small population of minority students that a lot wasn't applicable, but today made me realize it has to do with educating our white students." ~ Unknown
