A Socialization-Based Values Approach to Embracing Diversity and Confronting Resistance in Intercultural Dialogues
Pieterse, Alex L.; Collins, Noah M.
College Student Affairs Journal, v26 n2 p144-151 Spr 2007
The dynamics of resistance articulated by the Privileged Identity Exploration model highlight the need to acknowledge the role of socialization in the formation of attitudes and behaviors that can support identities of privilege. Exploring individual and group related socialization processes in the context of a difficult dialogue might facilitate an atmosphere of understanding and mutual respect between participants.
