Microaggressions are types of interactions that create a cognitive load that can impede a health professions student's ability to perform well in their program. This paper discusses the Microaggressions Triangle Model, which is a framework for understanding microaggressions from a human interaction standpoint. At each point in the model, the authors provide approaches designed to help recipients, sources, and bystanders construct responses that may allow for rebuilding. From a restorative justice standpoint, rebuilding gives all people involved the opportunity to restore their reputations and repair relationships. Rebuilding is about individuals and communities acknowledging and learning from the interaction as a way to promote a climate of inclusion in their organization.
