Synopsis:

Research on the effects of racial discrimination and harassment has demonstrated that racism in its various forms can result in distress that goes far beyond feelings of isolation and discomfort. In some cases, individuals who have been harassed or discriminated against suffer from Race-Based Traumatic Stress Injury (RBTSI), psychological and physical injury that results from racist practices and encounters of various kinds. This book develops a comprehensive, realistic framework for addressing the continuing failures of existing discrimination and harassment laws to address incidents of racism. Uniquely illustrating a complex array of interpersonal and psychological factors associated with racism, the authors advocate to confront racism with a new, comprehensive, and robust legal approach.
