Constantine, Madonna G.; Smith, Laura; Redington, Rebecca M.; Owens, Delila
Journal of Counseling & Development, v86 n3 p348-355 Sum 2008
This article reports on the results of a qualitative study of Black faculty working in counseling and counseling psychology programs. This investigation involved the use of semistructured interviews to explore the racial microaggressions Black faculty members reportedly experienced in academia. Results of the analysis indicated that 7 primary microaggression themes were perceived by the participants, including alternating feelings of invisibility and hypervisibility, receiving inadequate mentoring, and difficulties determining whether discrimination was race or gender based.
