How institutions and groups can prevent/manage microaggressions in effective ways.
Dr. Nadal is one of the leading scholars on the topic of microaggressions, or subtle forms of discrimination towards people of historically marginalized groups. This lecture focuses on the current research on the common microaggressions that occur, discussions on how to navigate microaggressions when people experience them, and ways institutions and groups can prevent or manage microaggressions in the most effective ways.
Dr. Kevin Leo Yabut Nadal is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology at both John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Graduate Center at the City University of New York. He received his doctorate in counseling psychology from Columbia University in New York City and is one of the leading researchers in understanding the impacts of microaggressions, or subtle forms of discrimination, on the mental and physical health of people of color; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people; and other marginalized groups.
He has published over 100 works on multicultural issues in the fields of psychology and education. A California-bred New Yorker, he was named one of People Magazine’s hottest bachelors in 2006 and one of NBC’s Pride 30 in 2018. He once won an argument with Bill O’Reilly on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor”; and he was even once a Hot Topic on ABC’s “The View”. He has been featured in the New York Times, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, the Weather Channel, the History Channel, HGTV, Philippine News, and The Filipino Channel.
***This event is made possible due to NCGPS offering a charitable donation of support to the Filipino American National Historical Society, where, gratefully we were given the honor of an hour with Dr. Nadal in return.***
