Event Details

We hope you can join us for an upcoming workshop for K-12 and adult education educators and administrators. Dr. Niemann led a similar workshop a few months ago on the U of A campus and it was very popular. We’re grateful for a partnership with the U of A Office for Diversity and Inclusion and a grant from the Walmart Foundation to be able to bring her back. A huge thanks also to the Northwest Arkansas Education Service Coop for hosting the event.

Workshop Description:

Microaggressions are commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward persons based on their demographic identities.

This interactive workshop led by Dr. Yolanda Flores Niemann, Professor of Psychology at the University of North Texas, will define and provide examples of microaggressions, beginning with the showing of Dr. Niemann’s nationally noted video, “Microaggressions in the Classroom” and will describe psychological consequences of this type of identity-based psychological harm and bullying. Engaging the participants, she will discuss additional examples of and potential responses to everyday microaggressions.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Recognize microaggressions
  • Understand how microaggressions are part of everyday bullying
  • Have knowledge of the psychological consequences of microaggressions
  • Practice responding to microaggressions

Please note: the same workshop will be offered the same day on the U of A campus from 11am – 12pm. If you are part of the university community or are unable to attend the afternoon session, you may register for the morning session here.
