WEBINAR: Did They Just Say That? Managing Microaggressions in Everyday Life!

February 29th, 2024 Noon - 1 PM CST

Brian Benford
Presented by Brian Benford, MSW

We’ve all been in situations when someone says or does something that feels hostile or offensive to some aspect of our identity — and the person doesn’t even realize it. These kinds of actions — insensitive statements, questions, or assumptions — are called “microaggressions,” and they can target many aspects of who we are.  Collectively, we will learn how to cope and heal from microaggressions and to prevent being a perpetrator of committing microaggressions.  
Learning Objectives 1. Create awareness surrounding the common occurrences of microaggresions. 2. Explore the outcomes associated with the experience of microaggressions. 3. Discover techniques to minimize the occurrence of microaggressions and ways to respond when someone has been microaggressive.
