In part three of this Microaggressions Presentation Series, Dr. Cerynn Desjarlais (Ph.D., Counseling Psychology), Director of Online Counseling Programs and Clinical Assistant Professor, focuses on understanding how individuals are impacted by microaggressions. She will provide an overview of the physical health, mental health, relational, and academic performance/work implications of microaggressions. She will discuss how microaggressions accumulate and contribute negatively to the health and wellbeing of those with minority group identity statuses. The concept of microaffirmations will be introduced as a potential means to affirm minority identity statuses which may help to counter the harm that is incurred by microaggressions. Ultimately, this session aims to help the audience attune to how individuals experience microaggressions mentally, emotionally, and physically, and understand how these subtle instances of discrimination can have a significant impact on wellbeing and performance domains.
