            Asian Americans used to be called “others,” and are currently one of the fastest growing populations in the US.  Studies on Asian American’s mental

            knowledge of mental health issues among Asian Americans are the main reasons for their underutilization of treatment and social services.  The 

            workshop will identify the diversity and complexity of Asian Americans and address common clinical and cultural issues.  The participants will also 
            learn effective and practical approaches and techniques to establish a therapeutic alliance with the population.  Case studies are also included in the


Target Audience
            This course is designed for mental health professionals who serve as clinicians, managers, case workers, supervisors/supervisees, students, mentors 

            and educators.
