Registration for non-AHC Members ($10 fee)
A number of stereotypes associated with Asian Americans exist, most notably the “modelminority” stereotype. Studies suggest that internalization of the modelminority stereotype may contribute to negative psychological outcomes and impact the process of ethnic identity development among Asian Americans,particularly for individuals who have had negative experiences related to model minority group membership. However, higher levels of endorsement, orinternalization, of positive Asian American stereotypes are related to increased somatic complaints and higher levels of psychological distress. The effects of internalized stereotypes in addition to parental expectations or perceived family pressure impacts Asian Americans self-efficacy, help seeking behaviors, and occupational interests. This webinar presentation will address the influence of internalized stereotypes and intraethnic othering with young adult Asian American persons in order to co-construct multicultural considerations and counseling treatment with this underrepresented population.Additionally, this webinar presentation will address current literature and research related to aspects of internalized stereotypes specifically associated with Asian Americans.
What is the relationship between level of acculturation and ethnic identity development for Asian Americans? How might internalized stereotypes influence Asian Americans throughout the lifespan? This engaging webinar presentation explores how acculturation mitigation strategies influence Asian American persons throughout the stages of development. Counseling implications for working with Asian Americans clients are explored. Webinar attendees will also be engaged through interactive dialogue and case vignettes.
