1) Bullying Resources (from Online Counseling Degrees)

  • Recently, the Diversity and Social Justice Committee was contacted by Online Counseling Degrees (onlinecounselingdegrees.net) regarding great resources they have available for education, outreach, and support related to bullying. Specifically, Online Counseling Degrees wrote a short article (Prevention and Tolerance: A Counselor's Guide to Bullying) about bullying and they have provided great information and resources related to bullying. Please click on the link above or here in order to read the short article, as well as to gain access to the 15+ resources they have listed at the bottom of the article. 
  • For access to the Online Counseling Degrees website, please click on the following link (http://www.onlinecounselingdegrees.net). Their main page showcases  many other great resources, covering such topics as grief, life coaching, coping with divorce, and mental illness treatment.

2) ACPA Social Justice Resource Project - A huge compilation of resources on a myriad of social justice and identity based topics.

3) LGBTQ Architect - A great resource for anyone working with LGBTQ populations. Materials include sample funding proposals, position descriptions, outreach strategies, programming resources for small and large events, introductions to climate assessment, and many other useful tools for starting and/or furthering the work of campus-based resource programs.

4) MLK Day of Service - Though MLK day is over, I think this website and the message behind the MLK day of service is a really powerful one. I think this is a really good example and a really great place to get ideas if you wanted to do a social justice or diversity themed day of service. Here is the website: http://mlkday.gov/

5) Mental Health First Aid - Here is a list of upcoming and past webinars on mental health topics

6) LGBT Inclusive Language - great website with educational signs about offensive GLBT-related terminology!  http://www.thinkb4youspeak.com/

7) Buying for Workplace Equality 2011 Index - The Human Rights Campaign's annual Workplace Equality Index for LGBTQ individuals. How inclusive is your favorite company? HRC Buyers Guide.pdf 

 8) Suggested Books - Here are a couple books on the topic of Mental Health for those looking for a good read at night.   

More Than Listening: by Ruth Harper, Nona L. Wilsoon, & Associates: http://bookstore.naspa.org/morethanlistening.aspx                            

College Student Mental Health: by Sherry A Benton & Stephen L. Benton, Editors: http://bookstore.naspa.org/collegestudentmentalhealth.aspx

9) Suggested Book - This book addresses the importance of understanding conflict fluency and urges us to avoid assumptions which could lead to cultural misunderstandings. An interesting topic for anyone in a leadership role.

Bridging Cultural Conflicts: A New Approach for a Changing World: by Michelle LeBaron: http://www.josseybass.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-078796431X,descCd-description.html

 10) Internet Resource: Anit-Semitisim Organization based out of Denver, CO. The Anti-Defamation League. http://www.adl.org/about.asp?s=topmenu

11) Suggested BookThe Difference  The author, Scott E. Page redefines how we think in groups and how our collective wisdom exceeds the sum of its parts. His approach to discussing diversity is different and I find his focus on cognitive diversity fascinating.

12) Internet Resource - Project Implicit "blends basic research and educational outreach in a virtual laboratory at which visitors can examine their own hidden biases". Each "lab" takes between 5-10 minutes and provides the test-taker with a bias result based on their responses.  A very interesting tool for those of us who may not be aware of personal bias.  https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/demo/

 13) Internet Resource- Just a broad reslife focused site with a variety of information. http://www.residentassistant.com/reslifepro/diversityresources.html

14) Speaker - The Anti-Defamation League facilitating "A Campus of Difference: Anti-Bias Training." This group facilitated two seperate trainings on the day they were on campus. The morning session was for the professionals working at the university and the afternoon was dedicated to student leaders. They facilitated discussions central to the culture of our campus. We discussed what we can and should do to address the various manifestations of bias in our community. For more information check them out at www.adl.org or email A Campus of Difference at campusdiversity@adl.org

15) Training Activity - BARNGA The goal of this "game" is to raise awareness of cultural differences, assumptions, and communication. Everyone will be playing the same game except that each group has just slightly different rules. When a player moves to a new group, unable to communicate, he will run into obstacles in winning a trick.

When someone joins a new group, or moves to a new home, the rules in that new place are similar but with some important differences. This is a low level way to introduce a deeper, high stakes, conversation with student leaders. When someone new joins the magority group, club, foor, staff, and culture, the majority needs to be flexible, supportive, patient and reserve judment when the student doesn't automically fall into the established social norms.
