I ended my Part 1 blog on this topic with the comment that the internal ego state model can be a useful way to understand what is happening when people are displaying prejudiced behaviour.
Here is a repeat of that diagram, about which I wrote as follows in my 1993 article.
In Part 1 of this blog I set the scene in my article and now in Part 2 I have reproduced for you what I wrote about prejudice and internal ego states. In Part 3 I will look at behavioural ego states and channels of communication, and finally in Part 4 I give some ideas about the game of PC – Politically Correct’.
