Navigating Intergenerational Relationships
June 29 , 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm PDT
June is National Immigrant Heritage Month. Whereas there are strengths, assets, and power that heritage cultures and families of origin bring us, immigrants and their youth can experience challenges associated with cultural clashes. Known as acculturation gap-distress or intergenerational cultural conflict, these challenges can negatively affect parents’ and young people’s mental health and educational outcomes. Join our virtual roundtable to learn about the science behind these challenges in their presentation, “Navigating Intergenerational Relationships: Psychological Science, Counseling Services, and Youth Perspectives”, from Dr. Priscilla Lui, how counseling services can improve intergenerational relationships in immigrant families from Ms. Rachel Colston, and hear about the lived experiences from young guest presenters.
Dr. Priscilla Lui is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Washington. She received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Purdue University. Priscilla Lui firstname.lastname@example.org
