Microaggressions in Everyday Life: Implications for Mental Health Practice

Mar 14, 2015 4:00pm ‐ Mar 14, 2015 5:00pm


Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership. In many cases these hidden messages affect the mental health of recipients and can cause a rupture in the counselor-client relationship when the therapist unknowingly engages in them. Implications for mental health counseling and the education and training of culturally competent counselors will be presented. Late admission will not be permitted, due to live recording.
