Examining Racial Microaggressions in Rehabilitation Counselor Education
Cartwright, Brenda Y.; Washington, Robin D.; McConnell, L. Robert
Rehabilitation Education, v23 n2 p171-182 2009
This research extends the Constantine et al. (2008) study which identified racial microaggressions against Black faculty working in counseling and counseling psychology programs. Semi-structured interviews and qualitative analyses were used to: (1) ascertain the existence of racial microaggressions among African American faculty employed in CORE-accredited rehabilitation counselor education programs; (2) examine the effect of racial microaggressions on the experiences of these faculty members, and (3) discuss strategies that may be used to challenge racial microaggressions. Seven themes were identified. Recommendations are offered to improve the work environment in support of retaining Faculty of Color.
