One of the most challenging aspects of social justice education is working with people from privileged or dominant groups---those who are in a more powerful position in any given type of oppression. In order to effectively implement diversity and social justice initiatives it is critical to involve people from dominant groups. But how can we move these often difficult conversations on privilege and oppression from something to be feared and avoided, to something that ultimately can be healing and liberating?Promoting Diversity and Social Justice gives theory, perspectives, and strategies that are useful for working with adults from privileged groups on diversity and social justice issues. The thoroughly revised edition of this powerful guide offers educational and psychological perspectives to inform practice and increase options in addressing conflict situations. Features to this new edition include:A new chapter on "unlearning racism" highlights specific ways people from privileged groups benefit from unlearning oppression and from creating greater equityA new chapter on Allies and Action gives focus and guidance on how people from privileged groups can constructively and appropriately be involved in social change effortsUpdated Appendix of additional resourcesThis book is an excellent resource for group facilitators, counselors, trainers in classrooms and workshops, professors, teacher, higher education personnel, community educators, and any other professionals involved with educating others about diversity and equity.
