Pandemic Easing; Staying Woke to Confronting Prejudice
My last direct connection with Pepperdine University was with Louis Cozolino, a mentor for me about the neuroscience of attachment. His The Neuroscience of Psychotherapy: Healing the Social Brain and The Neuroscience of Human Relationships: Attachment and the Developing Social Brain provided great guidance in understanding the neurobiology underlying some of our most frustrating experiences as human being relating to other human beings. I still use his examples in my teaching today.
So when I received Confronting Prejudice: How to Protect Yourself and Help Others in my inbox from Pepperdine’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology, I paid attention. And I’m so glad I did. And am now passing this thoroughly excellent resource on to you.
There’s the link to a comprehensive learning about micro-aggressions, implicit bias, discrimination, stereotypes, with an in-depth look at the effects of prejudice on health, how to build resilience against prejudice, how to help others who experience it.
And as we slowly emerge from the shutdowns and losses of the ongoing pandemic, we can still stay work to the “shutdowns” and losses of ongoing prejudice.
May you find this a truthful and useful resource for recovering resilience.
