As anti-Asian violence continues on over a year since COVID-19 began, many Asian diasporic communities are living under fear and distress. Together, we’ll dive deep into understanding the ways that colonialism, scapegoating, the model minority myth, and fetishization perpetuate harm. As providers, let’s assess our areas of racial identity growth and identify ways to shift towards culturally affirming and responsive therapeutic practices. From a decolonial lens, we’ll explore ways to rehumanize, reconnect, reclaim, and reimagine mental health care for Communities of Color on Turtle Island.

 

This webinar will be recorded and presented in English, however captioning and
