While the experience of being Asian in America varies tremendously, there are shared cultural factors that play a role in defining mental health and supporting well-being, resiliency and healing. Part of this shared cultural experience like values, family connections, expression through spirituality or music, reliance on community networks and church are enriching and can be great sources of strength and support. However, another part of this shared experience is facing racism, discrimination and inequity that can significantly affect a person’s mental health. Being treated or perceived as “less than” because of the color of your skin can be stressful and even traumatizing. This virtual monthly workshop will provide a safe space where you can share your narrative with supportive others.

It is estimated that up to thirty million people in the United States suffer with an Eating Disorder. These are not restricted to persons from majority culture as they do impact different ethnicities at similar rates. These disorders could consume much of a person’s time in thinking about food; planning what to eat or not eat; when to eat; and weight management through food restrictions, compulsive exercising, or other secret ways to feel in control of one’s body. This workshop will help to provide understanding on the development of eating disorders and offer healthy strategies for coping or providing support to those who struggle with them.
When: Thursday, March 9, 2023 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Facilitator: Gail Bruce-Sanford, Ph.D., Staff Psychologist
Location: Tivoli 651
This workshop will focus on how to begin changing the way you think about body size. Body positivity means being able to accept the body you (and others) have as well as accepting changes that happen as a result of nature, injury, age, or personal choices. It is the understanding that your worth is about who you are as a person, not what your body looks like.
When: Monday, February 13, 2023 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Facilitator: Jeanne Burkhart, Ph.D., Staff Psychologist
