Preventing Prejudice by Joseph G. Ponterotto

Book Description

The Second Edition of "Preventing Prejudice" has been completely revised and expanded to provide the most up-to-date and extensive coverage of prejudice and racism currently available. The new edition of this book not only presents a comprehensive overview of prejudice and racism but also includes practical tools for combating prejudice development in children, adolescents and adults. The text emphasizes the critical role counselors, educators, and parents must play in the fight against prejudice and racism. Pragmatic in nature, the book includes strategies that can be used by parents, teachers, and counselors in working to reduce prejudice across the lifespan.The text reviews an extensive body of empirical research on the link between identity development, prejudice, and mental health. The book summarizes racial, biracial, multiracial, and gay and lesbian identity models. A major new theory highlights the link of multicultural personality development to prejudice-free attitudes and behavior as well as to quality of life. This title provides concrete, easy to implement exercises on preventing prejudice and increasing multicultural awareness. In addition, the book includes a review of tests and instruments that measure prejudice and a list of films and books that serve as a resource guide for readers. The authors draw on theory and research in social, developmental, counselling and cross-cultural psychology as well as in sociology and education.
