Details: Product Description Praise for Microaggressions in Everyday Life "In a very constructive way, Dr. Sue provides time-tested psychological suggestions to make our society free of microaggressions. It is a brilliant resource and ideal teaching tool for all those who wish to alter the forces that promote pain for people." ―Melba J. T. Vasquez, PhD, ABPPPresident, American Psychological Association "Microaggressions in Everyday Life offers an insightful, scholarly, and thought-provoking analysis of the existence of subtle, often unintentional biases, and their profound impact on members of traditionally disadvantaged groups. The concept of microaggressions is one of the most important developments in the study of intergroup relations over the past decade, and this volume is the definitive source on the topic." ―John F. Dovidio, PhD Professor of Psychology, Yale University "Derald Wing Sue has written a must-read book for anyone who deals with diversity at any level. Microaggressions in Everyday Life will bring great rewards in understanding and awareness along with practical guides to put them to good use." ―James M. Jones, PhD Professor of Psychology and Director of Black American Studies, University of Delaware "This is a major contribution to the multicultural discourse and to understanding the myriad ways that discrimination can be represented and its insidious effects. Accessible and well documented, it is a pleasure to read." ―Beverly Greene, PhD, ABPP Diplomate in Clinical Psychology and Professor of Psychology, St. John's University A transformative look at covert bias, prejudice, and discrimination with hopeful solutions for their eventual dissolution Written by bestselling author Derald Wing Sue, Microaggressions in Everyday Life: Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation is a first-of-its-kind guide on the subject of microaggressions. This book insightfully looks at the various kinds of microaggressions and their psychological effects on both perpetrators and their targets. Thought provoking and timely, Dr. Sue suggests realistic and optimistic guidance for combating―and ending―microaggressions in our society. Review "Sue's book, and the accompanying research, writing, and training on microaggressions, is the most important recent development in studying racism, sexism, and heterosexism. Given the comprehensiveness and importance of Microaggressions in Everyday Life, it is hard to consider any significant weaknesses of this book. We hope that this book will be a good resource for individuals in organizational leadership, coaching, and the mental health field when engaging this discussion." ( Journal of Psychological Issues in Organizational Culture, October 27, 2010) "In his book, Dr. Sue presents the first ever analysis of the unintended slights that take their toll on the people of color, women, gay/lesbian, transgendered and other groups. Microaggressions is wrtten with an unusual combination of scholarly care, and accessibility for a lay audience a feature that owes much to Sue's own connection to his topic." (Unity First, Fall 2010) "Microaggressions in Everyday Life is robust with science and practice. The writing is engaging and thought provoking. It is a major contribution to the multicultural field and to the larger society. The one feature that I found most helpful about the organization of the book is that each chapter ends with a section titled The Way Forward. Here, Sue provides compelling insights and interventions to help the reader with ideas regarding what can be done about the issues raised in the chapter. The Way Forward sections in Chapter 11 and 12 are replete with specific examples for educators and mental health practitioners. I found these two sections to be especially strong; if educators and practitioners begin implementing these suggestions, we will make significant strides toward shining a light on, giving a voice to, and perhaps ameliorating microaggressions."
