20 Jan DR. DERALD WING SUE Author of Microaggressions in Everyday Life,
For Dr. Derald Wing Sue, the son of parents who emigrated from China, early childhood experiences of being teased about his ethnicity led to his fascination with human behavior. He is now one of the most prominent voices in cross-cultural studies. His work focuses on multicultural counseling and diversity training. Sue received a bachelor’s degree from Oregon State University and a PhD in counseling psychology from the University of Oregon. His passion for the Civil Rights Movement was the foundation for his interest in multicultural studies. Sue, along with his brother and fellow psychologist Dr. Stanley Sue, wanted to emphasize the importance of providing Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders effective mental health services; in 1972, they co-founded the Asian American Psychological Association (AAPA). Currently, Sue is a professor of psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University. He has also held numerous positions throughout the American Psychological Association, including president of Division 45, Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues, where he also won an award for mentoring and leadership. His books include Microaggressions in Everyday Life: Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation, Counseling the Culturally Diverse: Theory and Practice, and Overcoming Our Racism: The Journey to Liberation.
