Asian American Experience: Ethnic Identity, Racial Trauma, and White Adjacency

This course explores challenges in working with Asian American (AA) patients with traumas from (1) racism and/or (2) Asian cultural practices. It is often assumed that Asian Americans are successful in America: We will look at how this Model Minority/ White Adjacency stereotype obscures othering of Asian Americans and explore an unconscious defensive idealization of Whites and denial of anti- Asian discriminations and microaggressions.
