Anti-Prejudice (individual or team-taught):

Common topics in this area include:

  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Gender and orientation
  • SES/poverty
  • Immigration/nationality issues
  • Disability
  • Systemic issues and social context
  • Constructive approaches with self, family, colleagues

Depending on focus of topic and availability of speaker, co-leaders of team-taught sessions may include Dr. Latinia Shell, Nick Miron, Dr. Radhika Sehgal, Tim Hensley.

My approach is based in part on the works of Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw and Dr. Janet Helms, and group/class ground rules are based on works of Audre Lord (via Cultural Bridges) as per my teaching training at Eastern Michigan University by Dr. Nina Nabors.  I also employ experiential intervention methods based on research of Dr. Jason Lillis and Dr. Steven Hayes using cognitive methods (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to defuse defensiveness, resulting in reduction of prejudice.

Previous workshops and teaching in this area have included:

  • Exelon: Three-Mile Island Parents Group
  • F&M faculty and staff at Joseph International Center
  • Undergraduate and graduate classes

 

Rates vary depending on several factors including length of workshop or training, travel distance, number of attendees and facilitators. Please contact us for further information:
