Overcoming Everyday Racism

Building Resilience and Wellbeing in the Face of Discrimination and Microaggressions

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

This enlightening and reflective guide studies the psychological impact of racism and discrimination and offers steps to improve wellbeing. It includes definitions of race, racism and other commonly used terms, such as microaggressions. Each chapter of the book focusses on one category of wellbeing – self-acceptance, personal growth, purpose in life, positive relations with others, environmental mastery, autonomy – and includes case examples, spaces for reflection, and exercises. For use as a tool within counselling, as well as a self-help tool by individuals, each category provides a framework for thinking about how to manage everyday racism and thrive.
