This activity focuses on microaggression and their relationship to mental health and physical illness. Using a pulsed learning format via email, you are provided with a series of 10 multiple-choice questions to be completed over time. Questions are emailed to users at pre-set intervals and quantities. By tackling only a few questions at a time, the pulsed learning format eliminates brain strain and re-focuses attention on the subject matter to improve knowledge retention.
- Define the term microaggression and explain the origin of the concept
- Identify different types of microaggressions and differentiate microaggressions from implicit bias and racism
- Discuss the difference between a microaggression and countertransference
- Identify potential adverse physical mental health outcomes of microaggressions
