Lessons from the Past: Yellow Peril in COVID-19 Times
Join us for an Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month/Mental Health Awareness Month webinar!
A discussion on Asian American mental health through both a historical lens and through the lens of the current pandemic. Our panelists discussed how their family histories and their own traumatic experiences informed their work as psychologists, educators, and advocates for the diverse Asian American community. Issues such as multigenerational trauma, the importance of community healing, learning from adversity, drawing parallels from the past and exploring the silver linings were covered. Q and A session followed.
