In recent years, psychology research has focused increasingly on the subject of
Microaggressions. Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental
slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile,
derogatory, or negative messages to target people based solely upon their marginalized group
membership. While some people may believe that Microaggressions are brief and harmless,
many studies have found that Microaggressions have a significant negative impact on people?۪s
mental and physical health. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a hands-on guide to
strategies, approaches, and interventions to address Microaggressions.
