U. Wisconsin-La Crosse Hiring Psychologist to Treat Microaggressions

“will provide counseling services to students”

As you read this, remember that just a few years ago, people didn’t even know what microggressions were.

Campus Reform reports:

University hiring psychologist to treat ‘microaggressions’

The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse will soon hire a licensed psychologist to help students cope with with issues such as “microaggressions” and “bias incidents.”

The new Counselor/Psychologist (Diversity and Inclusion Liaison) will provide counseling services to students, but the position is unique as the new psychologist will “especially” tend to “students from historically marginalized populations.”

Posted Monday, the job advertisement adds that the psychologist will ultimately have “priority in addressing the mental health needs of students of color” and will work to help these students in group, individual, crisis, and couples counseling.

The counselor will also help “students coping with issues including (but not limited to) racial battle fatigue, bias incidences, microaggressions, and intersectionality,” and will also be dispatched occasionally to serve on the school’s “Bias/Hate Team.”

As at most other public universities, the UW-La Crosse Hate Response Team responds to reports of perceived discriminatory conduct such as “graffiti/vandalism,” “hateful messages…conveyed using sign language [or] gestures,” and anything offensive published in “public websites or blogs.”

Microaggressions are just that: micro. They have no more effect than an ant annoying an elephant.
