Caring for Asians

Caring for Asians: Navigating Stereotypes, Cultural Norms, and Beauty Standards

This presentation dives into the ways in which stereotypes impact well-being of Asian diaspora, the influence of media and interpersonal relationships on body image, and best practices for providing culturally-sensitive, weight-inclusive care. We’ll discuss the factors that increase risk for disordered eating and the factors that decrease the likelihood of people of Asian descent to seek mental health help. 

Please note that this is a 90-minute webinar. All registrants will receive access to the webinar recording, transcript, and resources after the training.
