On Demand Child & Adolescent Workshop: Acculturation: Navigating the Paradox of Bicultural Identities in the South Asian Community

This presentation was originally reviewed on May 3, 2023, and broadcast live online on April 28, 2023, from 1:00 PM – 4:15 PM ET. 

The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.

In this presentation, attendees will explore the impact of acculturation on the mental health of South Asian youth and families, including the challenges that immigrant parents face due to differences in parenting styles between their culture of origin and the host culture. The presenter will also discuss model minority stereotypes and their negative impact on South Asian youth, contributing to mental health disparities and cultural misunderstandings.

Furthermore, the presentation will include an explanation of Berry's acculturation model, which outlines how individuals adapt to a new culture while still maintaining their cultural identity. Attendees will have the opportunity to lead themselves through a self-assessment to gain a better understanding of how their own cultural experiences have influenced their personal and professional lives. Specifically, using Berry's Four Factor Cultural Model and Integrative Model of Racial/Ethnic Identity Development, attendees will identify periods of their life when they were integrated, assimilated, isolated, and marginalized.

This interactive and engaging presentation aims to provide attendees, especially child psychiatrists and mental health professionals, with culturally sensitive strategies for educating South Asian immigrant parents and their adolescent children on mental health issues. The goal is to promote mental health literacy, reduce stigma, and improve access to care within the South Asian community.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:

  1. Analyze the acculturation process of South Asian children of immigrant parents, the challenges they face in reconciling their Host Culture vs. Culture of Origin identities, the impact of acculturation on their mental health and well-being.
  2. Explain the impact of model minority stereotypes on South Asian youth and their families, and the ways in which these stereotypes can contribute to mental health disparities and cultural misunderstandings.
  3. Define culturally sensitive strategies for child psychiatrists and mental health professionals to educate South Asian immigrant parents and their adolescent children on mental health issues, with the goal of promoting mental health literacy, reducing stigma, and improving access to care within the community.
