Microaggressions are defined as indirect, subtle, or unintentional acts of discrimination against members of minoritized and marginalized groups. The impact of microaggressions can be more detrimental, in some cases, than more overt forms of racism and discrimination we are all familiar with.
Unfortunately, these more subtle microaggressions are an extremely common experience amongst minority individuals today; therefore, to practice ethically, it is essential that mental health clinicians obtain the knowledge, skills and ability to both help clients navigate such experiences and prevent further harm by avoiding inadvertent microaggressions in therapy practice.
