      Description

      The primary goal of the group is to process our identity as Asian Americans. Within the group counseling setting, we will examine our experience growing up in America, our family history, our immigration experience (for those who were not born here or did not grow up here), our experience at school and at work, and how racialized trauma affects us throughout. We hope that validation by other group members will strengthen our voice and desire for change. Participants can share their stories, gain empowering tools and information on their identity in Christ and, as an Asian American, and draw from community support.

      This group also aims to provide participants with:

      • A better understanding of racialized trauma.
      • The ability to grieve as well as to celebrate within a safe and professional setting.
      • Deeper dependence on God
      • Tools to empower your Asian American voice.
      • A place to process your family history and identity
