Description
Have you ever let a racist comment end a conversation or relationship? If racist talk gets you angry, how can you handle it without an argument? How can you help a person want to change? This book provides a toolkit of three ways to help you spread the virus of ERACISM (end racism). It will help you use the Trust Equation to improve your trustworthiness, Motivational Interviewing to learn a collaborative style of conversing, and Mindfulness to help you deal with your own emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness that could derail encounters. The application of these techniques follows the same considerations as transmission of a virus – individual exposure, facilitating conditions, and susceptibility factors. Many academic disciplines like economics, history, law, politics, psychology, sociology, psychiatry, the neurosciences, and computer science, help us understand different aspects of racism and interventions. This not a book about ending structural inequality or social empowerment in the usual sense. It is about increasing your chances of influencing change.
About the author

Rita
Promotes Human Diversity and Social Justice The Tool Kit for Spreading Eracism [End Racism] Like a Virus (2021) is a powerful and impactful book. Within its 83 written pages, the book by psychiatrist Dr. Kenneth Sakauye exposes racism for what it is and then identifies what each of us can do to be a part of the solution (not a part of the problem). Like the COVID-19 virus, racism spreads, mutates, and exacerbates public health exigencies worldwide. Attention and efforts are needed to weaken and diminish the “viruses”. This current issue-oriented book is well-written and easy-to-read. It grabs and maintains the reader’s attention (cover-to-cover), as it provides the “tools” or solutions to thorny issues (such as elements behind the January 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol uprising) and dynamics of racism (identified in Black Lives Matter Movement) and suggests applications to other worldly conflicts. Content in Sakauye’s book is a culmination of his half a century of interdisciplinary work spanning medicine, psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience, sociology, history, economics, law, anthropology, business, political science, computer science, and more. The depth and breadth of his knowledge and experiences are obvious throughout this book. The book leads the reader to think deeply, reconsider assumptions and beliefs, and engage mindfulness in all aspects of our lives. Throughout, it promotes human diversity and social justice.

A Scholarly and Practical Toolkit for Spreading ERACISM In Spreading Eracism Like a Virus, Dr. Sakauye tackles one of the most destructive forces in society, the problem of racial prejudice. Drawing upon a far-ranging knowledge of medicine, neurobiology, social psychology, computer science, business, and history, he has formulated a fresh and credible person-centered approach to countering racist beliefs and emotions. His proposed tool kit for ending racism offers not only a map for addressing implicit and explicit racist biases but, more generally, for living a more empathic and mindful life. James M. Ellison MD MPH Read more
