Microaggressions from the Inside Out
Sunday, January 20, 2019, 8-9:30PM (Eastern)*
Presenters: Kavita Avula, PsyD & Sabrina Crawford, PsyD
The insidious nature of microaggressions and their impact within individuals and groups is explored, illuminating how seemingly innocent comments can be disruptive to forging life-giving relationships. Two psychologists of color will gently raise awareness around microaggressions using self-disclosure, experiential learning, and group exercises to increase awareness and deepen sensitivity. Participants can reflect on how their identity informs how they can respond in order to build empathy.
