Join us for an exploration of anti-Asian xenophobia during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will discuss the psychological impact of stereotypes and racism, including the Asian American images in popular culture and the model minority stereotype. Finally, the presentation will include the importance of ally-ship in addressing injustice. Presented by Dr. Teresa Mok, a licensed clinical psychologist, and Dr. David Chih, director of the UIUC Asian American Cultural Center.

 Dr. Teresa Mok is a licensed clinical psychologist in Urbana, Illinois, where she maintains an adult-focused private practice. While trained as a generalist, her areas of research interest center around Asian American mental health issues, including identity, gender roles, and stereotypes. She has also explored how Asian Americans are affected by the “model minority” stereotype in a number of realms, including academic settings, sports, and within the media. She received both a Ph.D. and M.S. in clinical psychology from Purdue University and a B.A. in psychology and Chinese culture from the University of Maryland. Dr. Mok is a second generation Chinese American, born and raised on the east coast. Champaign-Urbana has been her home for the past 23 years, where she lives with her partner and their two teenage sons.
 
Dr. David Chih is the founding director of the Asian American Cultural Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign which opened in 2005. For over 30 years, David has focused on issues of diversity and inclusion with particular emphasis on Asian American and international student communities. Since coming to UIUC in 1998, he has served as assistant dean of students for Asian Pacific American Affairs, clinical counselor in the Counseling Center, and interim associate vice chancellor of student affairs for the Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Relations comprised of UIUC’s eight cultural/resource centers. He received a PhD in counseling psychology and a BA in East Asian studies and psychology from Indiana University, an MS in psychology from Purdue University, and completed a doctoral internship in psychology at Michigan State University Counseling Center. David is a second generation Chinese American.
