Description & Coverage
Description:

Stories offer opportunities for listeners to merge the storyteller’s experiences with their own, resulting in connections that can turn into life-changing experiences. As listeners and storytellers, it is imperative that we look more closely at the stories and narratives that shape our lives.

Using Narratives and Storytelling to Promote Cultural Diversity on College Campuses is an essential research publication that offers a framework for identifying culture-based narratives. The book follows five college students through a vast array of divergent experiences and provides a comprehensive dialogue about diversity through personal narratives of college faculty, students, staff, and administrators. Highlighting a range of topics including microaggressions, ethnicity, and psychosocial development, this book is ideal for academicians, practitioners, psychologists, sociologists, education professionals, counselors, social work educators, researchers, and students.

Reviews & Statements

"As listeners and storytellers, it is imperative that we recognize the stories that shape the world around us. Narratives of racial intolerance and social justice may seem overwhelming from afar and yet as we move closer, they invite renewed perspectives and deeper understanding."
