Educating People from Privileged Groups

In order to effectively implement diversity and social justice initiatives, it is critical to involve people from privileged groups. How can an educator meet the challenge of implementing diversity and social justice in organizations, institutions, and the community?
 
Promoting Diversity and Social Justice gives theory, perspectives, and strategies that are useful for working with adults on diversity and social justice issues. This book offers educational and psychological perspectives to inform practice and increase options in addressing conflict situations. The first part of the book helps the educator understand the reasons for resistance and ways to prevent it. The second part explains how educators motivate dominant groups to support social justice.

This book is an excellent resource for group facilitators, counselors, trainers in classrooms and workshops, professors, teachers, higher education personnel, community educators, and any other professionals involved with educating others about diversity and equity.
