Experiencing Microaggressions: How Can I Respond? (WEB19981)

Presenter(s): Noma Anderson, PhD
Course Description


People who experience microaggressions feel a range of emotions, frequently including stress, distress, anxiety, insecurity, and decreased feelings of well-being and self-esteem. What can I do when I am a target of a microaggression? What supports can I access? How can I respond effectively?

In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – speaker Noma Anderson explores the impacts of microaggressions, provides tools for responding, and guides us through practicing effective and empowered communication strategies as well as purposeful empathy and reflection to reduce the consequences of these events.
