Details

Prejudice is a significant social issue that the human race continues to face in the world today, and it is destructive and costly for social encounters. The increase of these social obstacles suggests that an intervention or collection of strategies are needed and necessary to break down prejudice barriers that divide communities of people. This first edition of Communicating Prejudice: An Appreciative Inquiry Approach breaks new ground with rich discussions of controversial interactions in various contexts that integrate prejudice and appreciative inquiry approaches from intra- and inter level perspectives. Authors provide alternative solutions that hold true for anyone who wishes to counter and regulate the impact of prejudice, racial profiling, bigotry, and stereotyping. (Imprint: Nova)
