Description

Understanding Adolescents' Mental Health: A Discussion on Academic Stress, Parent-Child Relationships, and Other Cultural Factors

Join us at 7:00 pm on Thursday, November 21, 2019 in the Theater at Cupertino HIgh School

This workshop is designed for parents and guardians who are motivated to learn more about adolescent development from a clinical perspective.

Goals of the workshop:

  • Identify some of the developmental and cultural challenges that adolescents and parents often encounter
  • Examine the potential impacts of these challenges on mental health and relationships.
  • Assist parents in understanding adolescents' worldviews, navigating conflicts within parent-child relationships, and building trust and emotional connectedness with their children.

While this workshop may include some research findings on Asian American adolescents due to the presenter's research background/speciality, it is open to all parents.

About the speaker:

Dr. Hanna Chang is a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of California and a graduate of Lynbrook High School. She received her masters degree (M.A.) in mental health counseling from Boston College, and her doctoral degree (PhD) in counseling psychology from Loyola University Chicago. She has more than 9 years of clinical experience, and has worked in a wide range of clinical settings, such as a residential community mental health center, 24-hour crisis line, substance use/addiction care in a hospital, and multiple university counseling centers.

One of the areas she specializes in is issues related to acculturative stress and bicultural identity development. Her doctoral dissertation explored the impact of cultural factors (model minority stereotype, acculturative stress, ethnic identity) on academic stress, performance, and mental health among Asian Americans.
