Microaggressions: How They Are Committed and Contained
Wilson, Priscilla G.
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2017 n2 2017
The term microaggression is defined and demonstrated from the viewpoint of graduate-level students. Using a classroom assignment, the students describe their personal experiences of being the recipient of a microaggression. The students describe the type of microaggression, theme, psychological dilemma, and recall how they reacted to the encounter. The physical and psychological impact of microaggressions on diverse populations is explained to provide insight on the outcomes. Implications are discussed as well as how the counselor or helping professional can use the client's experience as a tool for empowerment.
