The National Asian American Psychology Training Conference.
Sue, Stanley; Chin, Robert
The major goal of the National Asian American Psychology Training Conference was to bring together concerned Asian American scholars, practitioners, administrators, community leaders, and students to examine, discuss, and provide recommendations for the training of Asian American psychologists. Three kinds of products emerged from the conference: the accounts of personal experiences, novel training programs, and other issues that participants presented; frameworks and paradigms used to analyze the issues and problems; and substantive recommendations generated by the group interactions. Cultural and linguistic differences of Asian Americans vis a vis the larger society, their impact on mental health problems, the means of resolving these problems, and the training of Asian American psychologists for coping with these differences were discussed. Recommendations were made with regard to the types of psychologists that are needed, the training programs which specifically deal with working with Asian Americans, and the advocacy of particular training programs. The appendix includes a paper used as a stimulus for discussion of specific concerns at the conference. Topics related to the training of Asian American psychologists were covered in this paper.
