Description

Research has shown that graduate students of color are often navigating personal and professional relationships and race-related experiences like racial microaggressions that contribute significantly to their professional identity and the overall academic climate. This workshop will focus on providing a safe space for participants to examine racial microaggressions that have occurred while in graduate school and to identify and develop strategies to address ongoing interpersonal discrimination. A combination of lecture and experiential exercises will be utilized to facilitate this discussion. Participants can expect to develop a deeper understanding of racial microaggressions and microintervention strategies for addressing them.  

Workshop facilitated by Adjoa Osei, PsyD.
Co-facilitated by Nicole Benedicto Elden, PsyD.
