Topic: VIDEO CONFERENCE: Get rid of Micro-Aggressions from your NeuroDivergent relationship
When: Tuesday, February 16th at 4 pm Pacific Time
This is an important topic that is worth repeating. A few years ago, a new word was coined, “Micro-Aggressions” in the context of bullying and discrimination in schools and the workplace. But I think we NeuroTypicals are an overlooked population that experiences these micro-aggressions on a daily basis.
When you are told only what you have done poorly, not what you have done well. . . or you are criticized for being critical when you only disagree . . . or you are told you always get your way, when that is hardly true, . . . or you arrange loving displays of affection for the holidays, but your birthday is ignored, . . . or . . . you fill in the blank. . .
These are Micro-Aggressions.
As you well know, these micro-aggressions are demoralizing. Even worse than the original hostile comment is that there is little chance of repairing the relationship with an assertive confrontation. Merely asserting yourself can result in an escalation of hostilities, making you feel even worse.
But all is not lost. During this video conference, we will discuss ways to deal with these micro-aggressions and save your sanity.
