WHAT ~ Being a former task force member of the Department of Equity and Race Relations in Seattle Public Schools (now the Department of Racial Equity Advancement), Anita has more than 20 years of teaching and consulting experiences over the topic of race and equity.  We will learn from her presentation on how the ethnic minorities sensing and coping with the sense of “otherness” while surrounded by the mainstream stereotypes, ideologies and prejudice.

Learning Objectives: 

  • A deeper dive into racial microaggressions, the impact on the recipient and the impact of the author of the microaggression on the children/adults they serve
  • Examining microaggressions we experience (as a recipient or as the author) in our daily life/and or workplace
  • How we can lean on Adlerian principles to become more aware of and interrupt microaggressions within our sphere of influence

HOW MUCH ~ Free.  Ethics CE fees are $10/hr. for members, $15/hr. for others, if needed. Donations are also welcome.

Everyone is welcome.  All of our First Friday Forums are not only for mental-health professionals but also for the rest of us… parents, teachers, and community members who care about connecting and supporting one another.  As Adler said, “The science of the mind can have for its proper goal the understanding of human nature by every human being . . . and peace for every human soul.”
