Register: Intergenerational Trauma Among Asian American & Asian Immigrant Communities (Webinar Series)
Capacity Building & Leadership
Health Intervention Projects for Underserved Populations
In this webinar series, PHI’s Lotus Project will delve into the profound impacts of intergenerational trauma on Asian American & Asian immigrant (AAAI) communities.
Drawing on historical events, cultural context, personal narratives, and relevant research/case studies, speakers will explore how trauma may be “passed down” through generations and how it shapes the mental health, physical health, and identity of Asian Americans and immigrants today. Speakers will also discuss how systemic racism, immigration challenges, and cultural expectations contribute to intergenerational trauma, and will provide insight into how individuals and communities can work towards healing. Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of the complex interplay between history, culture, and mental health in Asian American communities, and will be equipped with therapeutic resources and strategies to support those affected by intergenerational trauma.
