Racial Microaggressions and the coping of graduate students of Color in School Psychology programs were examined. A national sample (N = 145) was collected from programs approved by APA and NASP. Two measures were administered to assess racial microaggressions occurrences and coping strategies. Results of the study suggest that there is a difference of racial microaggression experiences by Race. It showed that Black participants experience more racial microaggressions than Asian, Hispanic or Latino/a, Multiracial and White graduate students. Participants preferred positive rather than negative coping strategies when experiencing racial microaggressions. Practical implications to support graduate students of color and future directions for research are discussed.
