Jeanie Chang – Addressing Burnout and Trauma in Today’s Youth
Date Published: April 03, 2020
We are excited to release a new episode of our podcast, Korean American Perspectives! Today, we’re back with Jeanie Chang, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Founder of Your Change Provider, a therapeutic practice centered on authentic self-care and wellness.
Last week, we talked about sensitive issues that many Korean American families are struggling with today: depression, trauma, parent-teenager relationships and suicide. But mental health is a broad topic and this week we’re continuing that conversation with Part Two. If you want to listen to Part One, you can listen here.
This time, we discuss burnout seen in both students and professionals and how to address it. We delve into intergenerational trauma, cultural barriers, and societal pressures faced by today’s youth. We also touch upon health communication between college and high school students with their parents. Lastly, we discuss the value of meditation and just clearing your mind can go a long way towards establishing healthy mental health practices.
If last episode was helpful for teenage parents, this episode will be particularly helpful for our teenage and college-level students. But again, all of this is helpful to learning more about ourselves and our mental health.
If you missed any episodes from Season 2 or would like to go back and listen to Season 1, you can listen here.
