Racial Microaggressions: A Primer with Implications for Counseling Practice
Houshmand, Sara; Spanierman, Lisa B.; De Stefano, Jack
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v39 n3 p203-216 Sep 2017
Given their societal toll and ubiquitous nature, counselors and other mental health professionals inevitably will encounter clients who have experienced racial microaggressions in their practice. In this primer, we examine key issues relative to racial microaggressions and their impact on the lives of members of racial and ethnic minority groups. Drawing on burgeoning research, we also address likely coping strategies. Finally, we offer implications for mental health training and counseling practice. Throughout, we highlight the evident resilience of racial and ethnic minority individuals in the context of racial microaggressions.
