DoctorYou S02E10: 5 Master Suppression Techniques with Elisa

Dr. Elisa Araldi guests on DoctorYou today and we talk about Master Suppression techniques.

Master Suppression Techniques are techniques used to gain and maintain power by suppressing other people in a hierarchical environment. The framework of master suppression techniques was introduced by Ingjald Nissen and then made popular by Berit Ås. The 5 Master Suppression Techniques are:

  • 1) Ridiculing
  • 2) Making invisible
  • 3) Withholding information
  • 4) Double punishment
  • 5) Blame and shame

This episode is based on two documents found online and complemented by our own reflections: – A document by the empowerment network at Stockholm University (in Swedish) and a document on the Website of Karolinska Institutet.

Do you have ideas on how to counteract master suppression techniques? Discuss ridiculing, making invisible and the other ones on DoctorYou’s social channels: Instagram or Twitter and YouTube

DoctorYou is back on Tuesday 14 May, 17:15, on with the topic „The process of scientific publication“

In the meantime enjoy listening to the podcast on  Spotify and iTunes and Mixcloud!
