Racial microaggressions have been shown in research to cause very harmful consequences to those experiencing them. In this 2-hour training, the presentation will include definitions, research on microaggressions, what to do as a bystander and how to prevent harm to others in an effort to improve outcomes for system involved youth who are disproportionately youth of color and all too often negatively affected by racial microaggressions. Participants will be guided through a sequence of learning activities to explore and understand the negative impact of racial microaggressions and to gain increased self-awareness in order to reduce harm in the future through disruption and self-examination of their own behavior. Learning activities will include: self-reflection, storytelling of real life examples, large group exercises, and participant question time.
