Stereotype and Social Identity Threat


Stereotype and Social Identity Threat

Stereotype or social identity threat can be construed as an internal, cognitive state in which the individual is aware of negative stereotypes against his or her group and which can impact individual thoughts and/or 
behavior (Aronson & McGlone, 2009, p. 154). Considerable research demonstrates that stereotype threat can impact recipient behavior and can be destructive in relationships and in one’s personal view of him- or herself. Despite the prevalence and potential detrimental effects of stereotype threat, there are ways to decrease stereotype threat, including, but not limited to, reframing ability, use of role models, and self-affirmation.

Analyze stereotype threat and the conditions necessary for this type of threat to occur. Consider ways you might remediate a stereotype threat.
