Microaggressions in Everyday Life begins by introducing the concept of microaggressions-brief, everyday exchanges involving subtle racism, sexism, and heterosexism-and then presents a taxonomy of microaggressions. Next, manifestations of various microaggressions are examined, in addition to their psychological effects on both the perpetrators and target person. The book closes with a discussion of microaggressions in education, employment, and health care along with suggestions and guidelines for combating microaggressions. Written by bestselling author Derald Wing Sue (author of Counseling the Culturally Diverse, 9780470086322), this first-of-its-kind guide is a must for all mental health professionals, academics, and students.
