Working With Asian American Families: Opportunities and Challenges (8/5)

The Asian Student Association is pleased to present a 2-session virtual seminar with Dr. Jang Cho, entitled “Working with Asian American Families: Opportunities and Challenges.” These sessions will occur on Thursday, August 5, 2021, and Thursday, August 12, 2021, from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EST. The first session will be a didactic seminar with a clinical case presentation, and the second will be a discussion-based expansion upon themes from the didactic, including cultural competency and barriers to care in the AAPI community.

Dr. Cho is a board-certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist with a special interest in cultural psychiatry, especially in the mental health of Asian American children and adolescents. She is particularly interested in assisting Asian parents and their children to understand each other better and cultivate stronger bonds by bridging generational, cultural, and language gaps.

She has given numerous talks promoting mental health care for Asian American children both nationally and internationally and is a co-author on an Asian American mental health chapter in a cultural psychiatry textbook. She is a co-founder and a chair for the Asian Caucus in the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and a faculty member for the Harvard Medical School-affiliated organization, MGH Center for Cross-Cultural Student Emotional Wellness. She is a proud owner of Cultivate Psychiatry – a telepsychiatry practice that focuses on children and families of diverse backgrounds.
