Overcoming Systemic Prejudice and Discrimination
Achieving Success Through Ethical Resilience
by J. Dawson Williams D. Min.

Overview


About This Book: It has been said that counselors are much like trackers in the wild. For instance, a tracker looks at tracks to discern an entity's species, size, direction, speed, any injury, which side the injury is on, how severely the entity is injured, and other significant details. This book grows out of studying the tracks/lives of counselees over some three decades of pastoral and licensed clinical counseling. Biological, psychological, sociological, theological, emotional, spiritual, economical and many other aspects were observed in discerning insights that are described and explained in this book. Readers can gain insight into the following: (1) Systemic prejudice and discrimination along the lines of cause and effect (2) Insidious ways systemic prejudice and discrimination are implemented (3) Insight into the strain experienced by perpetrators and victims (4) Ethics and resilience-based strategies for mitigating the problem

Description


It has been my great honor to serve more than thirty years as a trusted counselor, coach, and consultant for a wide socio-economic spectrum of students, staff, administrators, and community members who live and work in multi-cultural settings. A few common threads that have surfaced in my interactions have been that of: (1) An individual coming to me for assistance in dealing with a complex situation that is discriminatory in nature. (2) Individuals seeking restoration after having led or participated in biased behavior toward others at some point in their lives. (3) Bewildered executive leadership inquiring about my insight into growing discontent within organizational ranks and ideas about how to mitigate the problem. Having repeatedly listened to heartbreaking stories, I began to discern pitfalls and steppingstones that are common in many of these experiences. Pitfalls are those decision traps where wrong decisions or actions can lead to an individual or an organization's demise. In contrast, steppingstones are opportunities to behave or govern in ways that lead to increase and elevation. After discerning that systemic bigotry presents one with both pitfalls and steppingstones, I labored diligently to devise appropriate illustrations and paradigms for use in helping confused individuals, as well as organizational leaders, comprehend and overcome discriminatory situations. Individuals of all backgrounds have this common experience of encountering unreasonable and disadvantageous circumstances. Therefore, I offer this report and analysis in hopes that consideration, discussion, and relevant application can be customized to each unique individual and community situation.
