Cultural Reverence for Asian Diaspora Communities with Dr. Jenny Wang

Virtual Zoom Training Presented by Jenny Wang, Ph.D

Training Description:  Recent increased violence against Asian Americans due to COVID-19 have highlighted the longstanding racism and xenophobia endured by Asian Americans throughout American history. Furthermore, the model minority myth and perpetual foreigner stereotypes have suppressed the diverse experiences of the many ethnic groups that fall under the Asian categorization in the United States. Previous and recent exposures to racial trauma makes it increasingly urgent that mental health professionals understand the unique experiences of Asian diaspora clients.

In this training, Dr. Wang offers insight into the unique forces that impact ethnic identity development within Asian American communities. This training will explore the impact of racial and intergenerational trauma on mental health and discuss common psychological themes that clinicians must consider in offering culturally reverent and compassionate care to Asian diaspora clients.

Course Outline:

  1. Historical background for Asian American individual and collective identity
  2. Immigration experiences and stereotypes
