Webinar Recordings: Intergenerational Trauma Among Asian American and Asian Immigrant Communities
Health Intervention Projects for Underserved Populations
In this webinar series, PHI’s Lotus Project explores the profound impacts of intergenerational trauma on Asian American and Asian immigrant (AAAI) communities.
Drawing on historical events, cultural context, personal narratives and relevant research/case studies, speakers 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 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.
Watch the webinars to gain a deeper understanding of the complex interplay between history, culture and mental health in Asian American communities, along with therapeutic resources and strategies to support those affected by intergenerational trauma.
See the first webinar in the series, below. Additional recordings will be posted when available.
