Course outline:

In this webinar, we will explore the pervasive issue of microaggressions and banter. We will focus on the knowledge, tools, and skills to create a more inclusive and respectful environment. We will also look at how work on microaggressions and banter fit within a whole school anti-bullying strategy. The webinar will give insights about the impact of microaggressions on individuals and wider groups. You will learn to recognise and address microaggressions effectively, fostering empathy, and promoting positive interactions.

Training topics will include:

  • Understanding what microaggressions are.
  • Recognising prejudiced attitudes targeting marginalised groups.
  • Reflecting how microaggressions affirm stereotypes.
  • Being aware of the impact of microaggressions on individuals and on groups.
  • Exploring the difference between microinsults, microassaults and microinvalidations.

Learning outcomes:

  • To grow consciousness of our own identities and the lived experience of others.
  • To build confidence in being comfortable with the uncomfortable, in doing the inner work before the outer work.
