Praise for Microaggressions in Everyday Life

"In a very constructive way, Dr. Sue provides time-tested psychological suggestions to make our society free of microaggressions. It is a brilliant resource and ideal teaching tool for all those who wish to alter the forces that promote pain for people."
Melba J. T. Vasquez, PhD, ABPPPresident, American Psychological Association

"Microaggressions in Everyday Life offers an insightful, scholarly, and thought-provoking analysis of the existence of subtle, often unintentional biases, and their profound impact on members of traditionally disadvantaged groups. The concept of microaggressions is one of the most important developments in the study of intergroup relations over the past decade, and this volume is the definitive source on the topic."
John F. Dovidio, PhD Professor of Psychology, Yale University

James M. Jones, PhD Professor of Psychology and Director of Black American Studies, University of Delaware

"This is a major contribution to the multicultural discourse and to understanding the myriad ways that discrimination can be represented and its insidious effects. Accessible and well documented, it is a pleasure to read."
Beverly Greene, PhD, ABPP Diplomate in Clinical Psychology and Professor of Psychology, St. John's University

Review:

Winner of the Global Diversity and Inclusion Book Prize 2010 from UnityFirst.com

"In Microaggressions and Everyday Life, Dr. Sue masterfully pulls all of his life and work experiences together to frame a new theory and vision for the study of racism, sexism, and homophobia. What Dr. Sue has created will ignite research in the field of racism and multiple oppressions that will ultimately lead to marked change in the way we all deal with and respect one another. This book is that good. It will change the way you think, it will move you to act and not just witness and observe, and it will even influence how you feel toward, communicate with, and care for your own loved ones, students, and clients."
From the Foreword by Joseph G.  Ponterotto, Ph.D., Professor, Fordham University

"This is a groundbreaking contribution and contains invaluable and powerful insights. In a very constructive way, Dr. Sue provides time-tested psychological suggestions to make our society free of microaggressions. It is a brilliant resource and ideal teaching tool for all those who wish to alter the forces that promote pain for people."
Melba J T Vasquez, Ph.D., ABPP, President, American Psychological Association

"Microaggressions in Everyday Life offers an insightful, scholarly, and thought-provoking analysis of the existence of subtle, often unintentional biases, and their profound impact on members of traditionally disadvantaged groups. The material is solidly grounded in theory, but the implications for psychological practice and everyday life are vivid. The concept of microaggressions is one of the most important developments in the study of intergroup relations over the past decade, and this volume is the definitive source on the topic."
John F. Dovidio, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Yale University

"Derald Wing Sue has written a must-read book for anyone who deals with diversity at any level. It is truly rare to find a book so scholarly, lucid and practical about the subtle ways in which good intentions are eroded by innocence and ignorance. Microaggressions in Everyday Life will bring great rewards in understanding and awareness along with practical guides to put them to good use."
James M. Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and Director of Black American Studies University of Delaware

"This is a major contribution to the multicultural discourse and to understanding the myriad ways that discrimination can be represented and its insidious effects. Accessible and well documented, it is a pleasure to read and makes a welcome addition to those readings considered essential to culturally competent practice."
Beverly Greene, Ph.D., ABPP, Diplomate in Clinical Psychology and Professor of Psychology St. John's University Jamaica, New York
